Out of the Mouths of Presidents

posted by Nora Puls

Listed below are several quotes from various presidents.  I offer them without comment (unusual) and realizing that–at least in recent years–they may be the work of speechwriters.  However, the presidents did say them.  Love whoever the president is at any given time or not, we must respect the office.  Happy reading.

 

“To be prepared for war is one of the most effectual means of preserving peace.”
George Washington

 

 



Equal rights for all, special priveleges for none.”
Thomas Jefferson                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  

 

 

 
 “I do the very best I know how, the very best I can and I mean to keep doing so until the end.”  Abraham Lincoln                                                                                                                                                                                                                                           

 

 
“Far and away the best prize that life offers is the chance to work hard at work worth doing” “In any moment of decision, the best thing you can do is the right thing. The worst thing you can do is nothing.” Theodore Roosevelt

 

 

 

“Once you say you’re going to settle for second best, that’s what happens to you in life.”              John F. Kennedy

Liberty without learning is always in peril; learning without liberty is always in vain.”             John F Kennedy

 

 

 

 

“If the people cannot trust their government to do the job for which it exists – to protect them and to promote their common welfare – all else is lost.”  Barak Obama

 

 

 

Americans are a free people, who know that freedom is the right of every person and the future of every nation. The liberty we prize is not America’s gift to the world; it is God’s gift to humanity.” George W Bush

                               

 

 

 

There is nothing wrong with America that cannot be cured by what is right with America.”           Bill Clinton  

 

 

 

“Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.” Ronald Reagan

 

 

 

 

“If two men agree on everything, you may be sure that one of them is doing the thinking.” Lyndon Johnson

 

 

 

 

“Here in America we are descended in blood and in spirit from revolutionists and rebels – men and women who dare to dissent from accepted doctrine. As their heirs, may we never confuse honest dissent with disloyal subversion.” Dwight D Eisenhower

 

 

 

 

“It will be of little avail to the people that the laws are made by men of their own choice if the laws be so voluminous that they cannot be read, or so incoherent that they cannot be understood.”                    James Madison
