Spirituality and President’s Day? It isn’t often we consider our former President’s as being spiritual. Yet our Forefathers definitely were. Perhaps because they led our Nation in time of war, their thoughts turned to a presence, greater than themselves.
Separated by almost 100 years, President George Washington and President Abraham Lincoln in their career position as the Leader of the United States shared their thoughts with us as follows:
PRESIDENT GEORGE WASHINGTON. . .
* Truth will ultimately prevail where there is pains to bring it to light.
* Happiness and moral duty are inseparably connected.
* Be courteous to all, but intimate with few, and let those few be well tried
before you give them your confidence.
* Labor to keep alive in your breast, that little spark of celestial
fire called conscience.
PRESIDENT ABRAHAM LINCOLN. . .
* Most folks are as happy as they make up their minds to be.
* Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a
man’s character, give him power.
* Give me six hours to chop down a tree and I will spend the
first four sharpening the axe.
* The best thing about the future is that it comes one day at a time.
Whether spirituality is part of your life or not, Choose Who You Want to be Known As. Have a good President’s Day and a good career week!
