Quotes Side by Side

“There’s no limit to what a man can do or where he can go if he doesn’t mind who gets the credit.”
— Ronald Reagan’s favorite quote, displayed on his desk in the White House Oval Office throughout his presidency.

“Your families, your teachers, and I are doing everything we can to make sure you have the education you need to answer these questions. I’m working hard to fix up your classrooms and get you the books, equipment and computers you need to learn…So I expect you to get serious this year. I expect you to put your best effort into everything you do. I expect great things from each of you.”
— President Barrack Obama, speech to school children on Sept 8, 2009

His speech was about the value of an education and not letting your circumstances hinder you.   Thought the speech was good and if students work harder, that is good.

Interesting to me was that President Obama took credit for the classrooms, getting books, equipment and computers for the students to learn and the students owe it all to him.  He expects it.

Thank you President Obama.
