ABE LINCOLN SAID…

********Abraham Lincoln (February 12, 1809 – April 15, 1865)******

A house divided against itself cannot stand.

Don’t worry when you are not recognized, but strive to be worthy of recognition.

You can fool all the people some of the time, and some of the people all the time, but you cannot fool all the people all the time.

How many legs does a dog have if you call the tail a leg? Four. Calling a tail a leg doesn’t make it a leg.

Government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the Earth.

America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.

Character is like a tree and reputation like a shadow. The shadow is what we think of it; the tree is the real thing.

When I do good, I feel good. When I do bad, I feel bad. That’s my religion.

Fourscore and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent, a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.

Give me six hours to chop down a tree and I will spend the first four sharpening the axe.

I do the very best I know how – the very best I can; and I mean to keep on doing so until the end.

I don’t know who my grandfather was; I am much more concerned to know what his grandson will be.

The shepherd drives the wolf from the sheep, for which the sheep thanks the shepherd as his liberator, while the wolf denounces him for the same act as the destroyer of liberty. Plainly, the sheep and the wolf are not agreed upon a definition of liberty.

To stand in silence when they should be protesting makes cowards out of men.

With Malice toward none, with charity for all, with firmness in the right, as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in, to bind up the nation’s wounds.

With public sentiment, nothing can fail. Without it, nothing can succeed.

You have to do your own growing no matter how tall your grandfather was.
