We are about to celebrate another President’s Day weekend, and with good reason: We’ve had some amazing presidents!

Most of these men issued forth a veritable number of memorable quotes. So it is here that I shall honor just a few:

George Washington - quote

George Washington-Born February 22, 1732-Died December 14, 1799

Actually, this quote was shortened–the full text was: “Associate yourself with men of good quality if you esteem your own reputation; for ’tis better to be alone than in bad company.”

Thomas Jefferson-1743-1826

“When angry, count ten, before you speak; if very angry, a hundred.” 

Abraham Lincoln-quote
Excellent quote for today’s president–yes?

Abraham Lincoln – 1809-1865

 

“Always bear in mind that your own resolution to succeed is more important than any other one thing.”

Franklin D. Roosevelt – 1882-1945 “The only thing to fear is, fear itself.”

Harry S Truman-quoteHarry S. Truman-1884-1972

“I have found the best way to give advice to your children is to find out what they want and then advise them to do it.” 

John F Kennedy-quote

John F. Kennedy-1917-1963

Ronald Reagan-quoteRonald Reagan-1911-2004

“The future doesn’t belong to the fainthearted; it belongs to the brave.” 

Of course, there are the memorable quotes made by others regarding our presidents, such as the one from Ann Richards about George W. Bush:

“Poor George. He was born with a silver foot in his mouth.”

And then, there is the one from William Taft that all authors and writers can take to heart: “Don’t write so that you can be understood, write so that you can’t be misunderstood.” Good one, Bill!
