Happy National Mattress Sale Day!

In honor of Presidents Day, I give you Presidential Quotes! Yes, technically and legally, it’s just George Washington’s Birthday (observed.) Live a little. I chose quotes that I found interesting, profound, funny, or telling from each of the 43 presidents. (Some president’s got two quotes. Abraham Lincoln got 18. Yeah, the other presidents were jealous. They’ll get over it.)  Also, posting the quote doesn’t necessarily mean I agree with the quote or the greater philosophy/actions of the president. These are short because I originally tweeted them, which obviously limited my options. All quotes taken from Great Presidential Quotes. Enjoy!
