QUOTES: Columbus Day

Happy Columbus Day.

President Reagan's Columbus Day Proclamation (1981)
Nearly five centuries have passed since the fateful day on which Columbus changed the course of history. But his adventurous spirit lives on among us, challenging us to emulation and abiding with us as we too press forward on our voyage of discovery.

President Harrison's Columbus Day Proclamation (1892)
Let the people, so far as possible, cease from toil and devote themselves to such exercises as may best express honor to the discoverer and their appreciation of the great achievements of the four completed centuries of American life.
