Famous Presidential Quotes

Here’s a fun challenge for history buffs. See if you can guess which former US President made each of these famous quotes.

1. I not only use all the brains I have, but all I can borrow.

2. If you can’t stand the heat, get out of the kitchen.

3. It is just as hard to do your duty when men are sneering at you as when they are shooting at you.

4. Let us have faith that right makes might, and in that faith let us to the end dare to do our duty as we understand it.

Note: Here’s a little help. The presidents who made these quotes are: Harry S. Truman, Abraham Lincoln and Woodrow Wilson. Two of the statements were made by President Wilson. Now do you think you can match the President to his famous quote? Give it a try, won’t you?

If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1910, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
