Andrew Jackson Quote: On Presidential Candidates

I found the following quote from Andrew Jackson while reading the book 
Andrew Jackson: His Life and Times by H.W. Brands

"The office of Chief Magistrate (President) of the Union is one of great responsibility.
As it should not be sought by any individual of the Republic, so it cannot with propriety
be declined when offered by those who have the power of selection."
