Famous Presidential Quotes

Hello Whyville!

It's time for another dose of famous quotes! This week, I have decided to provide quotes that were made by current of former Presidents of the United States of America. These men have served America to the best of their ability. So, please do not disregard the quote because it was made by a President you don't favor. On the other hand, don't like a quote just because you do favor that person or political party. Look at each quote as if you were impartial to the person. So, here we go!

1. When you are in any contest you should work as if there were - to the very last minute - a chance to lose it. - President Dwight D. Eisenhower

2. It is hard to fail, but it is worse never to have tried to succeed. In this life we get nothing save by effort. - President Theodore Roosevelt

3. A man is not finished when he's defeated; he's finished when he quits. - President Richard M. Nixon

4. Don't expect to build up the weak by pulling down the strong. - President Calvin Coolidge

5. Efforts and courage are not enough without purpose and direction. - President John F. Kennedy

6. We believe that all men are created equal because they are created in the image of God. -President Harry S. Truman

I hope you have enjoyed my series of articles on Famous Quotes. As always, think deeply about these quotes and drink deeply from the fountain of someone else's knowledge.

Next weeks theme is "Quotes from American Entrepreneurs". There will be some from famous business people like Bill Gates and Walt Disney. If you have any quotes you think are meaningful, please y-mail me with the quote and the author.

Remember to post your thoughts about this series and individual quotes, maybe your favorite quote, in the BBS. Please be courteous and do not use this to post your political opinion. (Hmm... there's an idea for another article).

Signing Off... Until next time, of course.
