Words of Wisdom From Our Presidents For President's Day

 

"President's Day" holiday was first established in 1885 to recognize our first President, George Washington on his birthday. However, at that time it was not known as "President's Day." It became popularly known as President's Day after it was moved as part of the 1971 Uniform Monday Holiday Act, whose purpose was to create more 3-day weekends for American workers and after retailers began referring to the holiday as President's Day to promote sales. Today, President's Day is understood as a celebration of the birthdays and lives of all American Presidents.

 

When we think of our Presidents, there are any number who quickly come to mind and there are many quotes from our Presidents that many of us immediately recognize. But there are also quotes from a number of our Presidents that are less well known, but yet are inspirational today, on President's Day, and any day of the year.

 

 

PRESIDENTIAL WORDS TO LIVE BY

 

"It is hard to fail, but it is worse to have never tried to succeed."   

Theodore Roosevelt

"Try and fail, but don't fail to try." 

John Quincy Adams

      

"The harder the conflict, the greater the triumph." 

 George Washington

"Don't allow your doubts of today limit our tomorrow." 

Franklin Delano Roosevelt

"Most folks are as happy as they make up their minds to be."    

Abraham Lincoln

"It's easier to do a job right, than to explain why you didn't." 

Martin Van Buren

"Accomplishment will prove to be a journey not a destination." 

Dwight D Eisenhower

"It's amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit." 

Harry S Truman

 

"One perseon can make a difference and everyone should try." 

John Fitzgerald Kennedy


"Live simply, love generously, care deeply, speak kindly, leave the rest to God." 

Ronald Reagan

 

Truly great Presidential words we can all live by today on President's Day and every day of every year.

Which one is your favorite? They are all my favorite, but I do especially love the Ronald Reagan quote.

 

Happy President's Day!

Hi Nina Hollander - More great quotes from our Presidents. Thank You.  

My husband displayed a plaque from Ronald Reagan that had the Harry Truman quote on it.  You can accomplish much if you don't care who gets the credit. Opps!  Someone screwed up!  

As a manager, he posted it below his office lightswitch.  Every time he entered his office or left it. He saw the plaque. I asked him why he placed it there. It was to always to give credit to other members of his team.
