It’s the third Monday of February, which means it’s time to pay tribute to all the 45 presidents who took the reins of the nation at different times in history and led it to where it is today.

Presidents Day is marked to commemorate the birthdays of the first president, George Washington, and former President Abraham Lincoln. Although the day was initially observed on Feb. 22, coinciding with the birthday of Washington, it was later changed.

Here are some inspirational quotes from notable American presidents, courtesy, Psychology Today and Life Hack:
