Each year on Inauguration Day, the president and vice president are sworn into office and commence a new term. The day-long celebration includes a morning worship service, a procession to the capitol and swearing-in ceremonies.

But the featured event is the inaugural address, during which the incoming president offers his vision of the country's future.

In honor Inauguration Day, we've compiled a list of memorable quotes from past speeches. Can you guess which presidents said the following quotes?

For more information, find transcripts of all past inaugural speeches courtesy of Yale Law School's Avalon Project here.
