As Presidents Day approaches, we thought it would be fun to share a few of our favorite presidential quotes. And while there have been many great words of wisdom from the White House over the years, we decided on focus on five that also reflect some of our values and ideals here at Summer Search.
George Washington on the importance of education:
“Knowledge is, in every country, the surest basis of public happiness.”
Abraham Lincoln on making the most out of life.
“In the end, it’s not the years in your life that count. It’s the life in your years.”
Theodore Roosevelt on daring to be great and having the courage to, as our founder Linda Mornell says, “go for hard.”
“We must dare to be great; and we must realize that greatness is the fruit of toil and sacrifice and courage.”
John F. Kennedy on giving back to your community and country.
“Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country.”
Barack Obama on daring to lead.
“Don’t just get involved. Fight for your seat at the table. Better yet, fight for a seat at the head of the table.”
