Honoring Presidents' Day With Presidential Quotes

 

 

Presidents' Day came about in 1971 as part of the Uniform Monday Holiday Act to provide more 3-day weekends for American workers. Since then, Presidents' Day has  evolved to become a holiday that recognizes the contributions of all American presidents. Through their leadership, our nation continues to aspire to the ideals of liberty, equality and natural rights that serve as the foundations of our democracy

 

When we think of our Presidents, there are quite a few who quickly come to mind and there are numerous quotes from our Presidents that many of us immediately recognize. But there are also quotes from a number of our Presidents who are less well remembered, but continue to be inspirational today, on Presidents' Day, and any day of the year.

Hi Nina Hollander - You always do a great job with these quotes.  They are very inspirational.  I have to tell you,  my husband saw a plaque and bought it with the Harry Truman quote but the plaque said it was from Ronald Reagan! YIKES! My husband put that plaque right above the light switch of his office at UPS because every time he entered or left the room he wanted to remember it and live up to it.  It wasn't until after he retired that we say it was credited to Harry Truman!  (He still has the plaque but it is hanging in the garage!) LOL!

Sheri Sperry - MCNE® love that story... regardless of who the quote is attributed to it's a good quote and good words to live by! I have a feeling Harry Truman wouldn't have minded. :)

Being self-employed kind of takes the fun out of getting a holiday off and being able to enjoy a 3-day weekend, haha.

Rocky Dickerson good morning, Rocky. Ronald Reagan certainly had a way with words. And whatever one thinks of Donald Trump, he had a point about the danger of giving in to fear.

Brian England good morning, Brian... I figured out a long time ago that being self-employed is no reason to feel guilty about taking a few days off if one is able to.

Joan Cox hi Joan... this was a list that made it hard to pick a favorite. I could have made a cogent arguments for each one to be a favorite.
