Happy Birthday Abraham Lincoln!

I am still plugging away in my Tribute Journal, and it is only fitting that I share my Abraham Lincoln page with you today.  I admire Abraham because he was an overcomer.  He overcame hardship and disadvantage, and even failure to become a man of great influence.  He carried that power with integrity, a rare feat.  His depth of wisdom and insight is apparent in many of his quotes.  I included some of my favorites on the page.

“Be sure you put your feet in the right place, then stand firm.”

“Most folks are about as happy as they make up their minds to be.”

“The best way to destroy an enemy is to make him a friend.”

“Sir, my concern is not whether God is on our side; my greatest concern is to be on God’s side, for God is always right.”

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

“You cannot escape the responsibility of tomorrow by evading it today.”

“Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt.”

  1. Lovely page. I am really enjoying seeing all the excerpts from this journal. Lincoln is my second favourite President and someone I admire greatly. Two of my kids have a slight Abe obsession. One even sleeps with a cuddly Lincoln.
