You Can Quote Him

I know it's not February yet, but it's close enough to start quoting Abraham Lincoln. He was a great man who had (and shared) a lot of wisdom and I would be interested to see how our country would look today had his life not been cut short. In the meantime, mull on these quotes from our 16th President...


"Whatever you are, be a good one."
***
"Always bear in mind that your own resolution to succeed is more important than any one thing."
***
"It is difficult to make a man miserable while he feels worthy of himself and claims kindred to the great God who made him."
***
"I am a firm believer in the people. If given the truth, they can be depended upon to meet any national crises. The great point is to bring them the real facts."

And how could you not love a man who said this??

"If this is coffee, please bring me some tea; but if this is tea, please bring me some coffee."

There are more than 400,000 words in the English language. My only request of you is this: Use them wisely.
