Rushmore - PresidentsIn honor of President’s Day, here are a few quotes from presidents about the importance of preparation in all aspects of life. All are found at Being Prepared Those who trust to chance must abide by the results of chance. --Calvin Coolidge They criticize me for harping on the obvious; if all the folks in the United States would do the few simple things they know they ought to do, most of our big problems would take care of themselves. --Calvin Coolidge In preparing for battle I have always found that plans are useless, but planning is indispensable. --Dwight D. Eisenhower Our real problem, then, is not our strength today; it is rather the vital necessity of action today to ensure our strength tomorrow. --Dwight D. Eisenhower 'Worry' is a word that I don't allow myself to use. --Dwight D. Eisenhower Wisdom oft times consists of knowing what to do next. --Herbert Hoover Things do not happen. Things are made to happen. --John F. Kennedy There are risks and costs to action. But they are far less than the long range risks of comfortable inaction. --John F. Kennedy The time to repair the roof is when the sun is shining. --John F. Kennedy You cannot escape the responsibility of tomorrow by evading it today. --Abraham Lincoln We will always remember. We will always be proud. We will always be prepared, so we will always be free. --Ronald Reagan The only thing we have to fear is fear itself. --Franklin D. Roosevelt Being Healthy The health of the people is of supreme importance. All measures looking to their protection against the spread of contagious diseases and to the increase of our sanitary knowledge for such purposes deserve attention of Congress. --Chester A. Arthur The awareness that health is dependent upon habits that we control makes us the first generation in history that to a large extent determines its own destiny. --Jimmy Carter Financial preparation There is no dignity quite so impressive, and no one independence quite so important, as living within your means. --Calvin Coolidge Economy is the method by which we prepare today to afford the improvements of tomorrow. --Calvin Coolidge Let every man, every corporation, and especially let every village, town, and city, every county and State, get out of debt and keep out of debt. It is the debtor that is ruined by hard times. --Rutherford B.
