Today is Presidents Day.  You can like a President or not like a President…they can be from your party or not from your party…you can agree with their agenda and policies or disagree with their agenda and policies.  Regardless, the one thing I don’t think anyone can argue, is being President requires leadership, commitment, sacrifice and a tremendous amount of mojo.  Here are some inspiring quotes from past presidents which have shaped America.  Great stuff from some great leaders that devoted their lives to us and our country.

1. “There are two kinds of success. One is the very rare kind that comes to the man who has the power to do what no one else has the power to do.

That is genius.

But the average man who wins what we call success is not a genius. He is a man who has merely the ordinary qualities that he shares with his fellows, but who has developed those ordinary qualities to a more ordinary degree”.
Theodore Roosevelt (1858-1919) – 26th President of the United States

2. “Our problems are man-made, therefore they may be solved by the man. And man can be as he wants. No problem of human destiny is beyond beings”.
John F. Kennedy (1917-1963) – 35th President of the United States

3. “We grow by dreams. All big men are dreamers, some of us let dreams die, but others nourish and protect them, nurse them through bad days . . . to the sunshine and light which always come”.
Woodrow Wilson (1856-1924) – 28th President of the United States

4. “Most people are about as happy as they make up their mind to be”.

“And in the end, it’s not the years in your life that count. It’s the life in your years.”

“It may seem strange that any men should dare to ask a just God’s assistance in wringing their bread from the sweat of other men’s faces; but let us judge not that we be not judged. The prayers of both could not be answered; that of neither has been answered fully. The Almighty has His own purposes.”
Abraham Lincoln (1809-1895) – 16th President of the United States

5. “The buck stops here”.
Harry S. Truman (1884-1972) – 33rd President of the United States

6. “Change is the law of life. And those who look only to the past or the present are sure to miss the future”. 
John F. Kennedy (1917-1963) – 35th President of the United States

7. “So let me assert my firm belief that the only thing we have to fear is fear itself – nameless, unreasoning, unjustified terror which paralyzes needed efforts to convert retreat into advance”.
Franklin D. Roosevelt (1882-1945) – 32nd President of the United States

8. “It is hard to fail but is worse to have not tried to succeed. In this life we get nothing save by effort.”
Theodore Roosevelt (1858-1919) – 26th President of the United States

9. “Do what you can, with what you have, where you are”.
Theodore Roosevelt (1858-1919) – 26th President of the United States

PRESIDENT’S WIVES:

10. “Never lose sight of the fact that the most important yardstick of your success will be how you treat other people – your family, friends and co-workers and even strangers you meet along the way”.
Barbara Bush – Wife of President George Bush

11. “The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams”.
Eleanor Roosevelt (1884-1962) – Wife of President Franklin D. Roosevelt, American Humanitarian, Columnist and Lecturer
