Happy Presidents Day!
Did you know that the official designation of today’s holiday is Washington’s Birthday? (Not Presidents Day.) Read a long and involved explanation here.
Whatever! Here are some presidential quotes for you today. In honor of all our Presidents.
If the freedom of speech is taken away then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter.
I have been driven many times upon my knees by the overwhelming conviction that I had nowhere else to go. My own wisdom and that of all about me seemed insufficient for that day.
Do you want to know who you are? Don’t ask. Act! Action will delineate and define you.
I must not write a word to you about politics, because you are a woman.
Don’t join the book burners. Do not think you are going to conceal thoughts by concealing evidence that they ever existed.
~Dwight D. Eisenhower
Do not pray for easy lives. Pray to be stronger men.
~John F. Kennedy
