President’s Day

Did you know that President’s Day was originally observed on Feb 22nd? This day was George Washington’s birthday! It is now celebrated on the third Monday of the month under The Uniform Monday Holiday Act. This bill was passed in 1968 and went into effect in 1971, as a way to give workers multiple long weekends.

As our country prepares to honor and reflect on the achievements of our President’s, we put together some quotes to impart the wisdom of these great men & continue their legacies:

“Ninety-nine percent of failures come from people who make excuses.”
George Washington

“Nothing can stop the man with the right mental attitude from achieving his goal; nothing on earth can help the man with the wrong mental attitude.”
Thomas Jefferson

“The circulation of confidence is better than the circulation of money.”
James Madison

“If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.”
John Quincy Adams

”Leave nothing for tomorrow which can be done today.”

“Great lives never go out; they go on.”

“It is hard to fail, but it is worse never to have tried to succeed.”

“It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.”
Franklin D. Roosevelt

“Conformity is the jailer of freedom and the enemy of growth.”
John F. Kennedy

“If you take no risks, you will suffer no defeats. But if you take no risks, you win no victories.”
