Happy Birthday, George! Today we observe the birth of one of the most influential figures in early American history. George Washington led the Continental Army in the American Revolutionary War as Commander-in-Chief and, upon America winning the war and becoming a free nation, became the country's very first president.
Okay, enough of the history lesson. We all know who Washington was! And surely we can all imagine the great strength he possessed, the courage required to lead his people to freedom, and the wisdom he gained through these experiences.
In honor of President Washington, take a moment to read some of his most famous quotes and think about how they apply to you. Use them to make wise decisions and become the best person you can be!
"Be courteous to all, but intimate with few, and let those few be well tried before you give them your confidence."
"It is better to offer no excuse than a bad one."
"Happiness and moral duty are inseparably connected."
"I hope I shall possess firmness and virtue enough to maintain what I consider the most enviable of all titles, the character of an honest man."
"Associate with men of good quality if you esteem your own reputation; for it is better to be alone than in bad company."
