President’s Day Wisdom

presidentialsealFor President’s Day  . . . a quote each from the 1st and 16th presidents whose February birthdays were combined to create the current holiday.  Among all the many wonderful things they each said, these two statements establish them to be men who honored God and acknowledged His place in the order of things. 

Be lifted by George Washington and Abraham Lincoln.


“Let us with caution indulge the supposition that morality can be maintained without religion.  Reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principle.”   George Washington


Lincoln “I can see how it might be possible for a man to look down upon the earth and be an atheist, but I cannot conceive how a man could look up into the heavens and say there is no God.”  Abraham Lincoln
