Happy President’s Day! As a tribute to so many wonderful leaders of this country, I’m sharing some of my favorite quotes. (Not listed in any particular order).

Theodore Roosevelt

“The only man who makes no mistake is the man who does nothing.”
Franklin D. Roosevelt
“The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.”
“A good leader can’t get too far ahead of his followers.”
“Happiness lies in the joy of achievement and the thrill of creative effort.”
John F. Kennedy
“The American, by nature, is optimistic. He is experimental, an inventor and a builder who builds best when called upon to build greatly.”
“And so my fellow Americans, ask not what your country can do for you; ask what you can do for your country.”
“If we cannot end now our differences, at least we can help make the world safe for diversity.”
William J. Clinton

“There is nothing wrong in America that can’t be fixed with what is right in America.”
“If you live long enough, you’ll make mistakes. But if you learn from them, you’ll be a better person. It’s how you handle adversity, not how it affects you. The main thing is never quit, never quit, never quit.”
Abraham Lincoln
“You can fool all of the people some of the time, and some of the people all of the time, but you can not fool all of the people all of the time.”

“If slavery is not wrong, nothing is wrong.”

“Do I not destroy my enemies when I make them my friends?”

“Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt.”

Harry S. Truman

“You can not stop the spread of an idea by passing a law against it.”
“We need not fear the expression of ideas—we do need to fear their suppression.”
“A pessimist is one who makes difficulties of his opportunities and an optimist is one who makes opportunities of his difficulties.”

Dwight David Eisenhower
“America is best described by one word, freedom.”
“I never saw a pessimistic general win a battle.”
“There is nothing wrong with America that the faith, love of freedom, intelligence and energy of her citizens cannot cure.”

“A man who has never lost himself in a cause bigger than himself has missed one of life’s mountaintop experiences. Only in losing himself does he find himself.”
“What kind of nation we will be, what kind of world we will live in, whether we shape the future in the image of our hopes, is ours to determine by our actions and our choices.”
“Always give your best, never get discouraged, never be petty; always remember, others may hate you. Those who hate you don’t win unless you hate them. And then you destroy yourself.”

Ronald W. Reagan
“America is too great for small dreams.”
“We are a nation that has a government—not the other way around. And that makes us special among the nations of the earth.”

“Some people call me an idealist. Well, that is the way I know am an
American. America is the only idealistic nation in the world.”
