President’s Day - Leadership Quotes to Live By

President’s Day is a United States federal holiday and is celebrated on the third Monday in February. The President’s Day holiday was originally to honor President George Washington and was known as “Washington’s Birthday”; however, it was renamed in the late 1980s to celebrate both Presidents Washington and Lincoln. The day is now simply referred to as President’s Day. It is common to find banks and government offices closed on the President’s Day holiday; however, most retail stores are open on the day, and many have special sales which happen on that day each year. Because the celebration of President’s Day is all about leadership and celebrating the special men who have led our country over the past two hundred plus years, I have gathered together some of my favorite US President leadership quotes. They are listed below for you to read and think about this President’s Day.

2. "I not only use all the brains that I have, but all that I can borrow." - Woodrow Wilson

3. "Honesty is the first chapter in the book of wisdom." - Thomas Jefferson

4. "No man is above the law and no man is below it; nor do we ask any man's permission when we require him to obey it. Obedience to the law is demanded as a right; not asked as a favor." - Theodore Roosevelt

5. "Patience and perseverance have a magical affect before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish." - John Quincy Adams

6. " ‘Tis better to be silent and be thought a fool, than to speak and remove all doubt." - Abraham Lincoln
