President's Day

This weekend is President's Day weekend!

It is the weekend we celebrate the President's of the United States. 

Think about it--45 men have held the job of President of these United States. There have been great and not so great presidents. 

But one thing I am sure of--no one wants a president to fail. I may disagree with them over so many indues, but I never want a president to be a failure. And most have been successful. 

Here are some motivational quotes from successful Presidents:

“The harder the conflict, the greater the triumph.” – George Washington

“I would rather belong to a poor nation that was free than to a rich nation that had ceased to be in love with liberty.” – Woodrow Wilson

“Honesty is the first chapter of the book wisdom.” – Thomas Jefferson

“Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man’s character, give him power.” – Abraham Lincoln

“America was not built on fear. America was built on courage, on imagination and an unbeatable determination to do the job at hand.” – Harry S. Truman

“The American, by nature, is optimistic. He is experimental, an inventor and a builder who builds best when called upon to build greatly.” – John F. Kennedy

“Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure, than to take rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy much nor suffer much, because they live in the gray twilight that knows neither victory nor defeat.” – Theodore Roosevelt

I found the Lincoln quote to be especially timely.
