I once had a U.S. history teacher who liked to make learning more interesting in his class. He created little games out of his quizzes. This teaser is in honor of him. His technique and patience helped form my interest in history.

Can you match the presidential quotes from section A with the right president from section B? Good luck.

Section A

1. "To be prepared for war is one of the most effectual means of preserving peace."

2. "Do I not destroy my enemies when I make them my friends?"

3. "If it were not for the reporters, I would tell you the truth."

4. "Speak softly and carry a big stick."

5. "Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall."

6. "We will bring the terrorists to justice; or we will bring justice to the terrorists. Either way, justice will be done."

Section B

1. George Walker Bush.

2. Chester Alan Arthur.

3. Abraham Lincoln.

4. Ronald Wilson Reagan.

5. George Washington.

6. Theodore Roosevelt.


Answer

1. "To be prepared for war is one of the most effectual means of preserving peace."
George Washington (1789 - 1797)

2. "Do I not destroy my enemies when I make them my friends?"
Abraham Lincoln (1861 - 1865)

3. "If it were not for the reporters, I would tell you the truth."
Chester Alan Arthur (1881 - 1885)

4. "Speak softly and carry a big stick."
Theodore Roosevelt (1901 - 1909)

5. "Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall."
Ronald Wilson Reagan (1981 - 1989)

6. "We will bring the terrorists to justice; or we will bring justice to the terrorists. Either way, justice will be done."
George Walker Bush (2001 - 2008)

Curious what people would think if someone posted a teaser matching quotes to, oh, I don't know...Australian Prime Ministers...

This one was enjoyable (and easier than part 2).

BTW I'd be up for Australian PM quotes - there seem to be a few Australians on this site!

Those are some pretty well known qoutes, but I still had to guess at about half of them.

I got them all - some through knowledge and some through guessing through elimination. Great teaser!
