Lessons from Lincoln

Today in the USA we’re celebrating President’s Day.  It’s a chance to honor and remember the men who have served the US since its birth.  In honor of this I thought I would share some wisdom from one of the most famous presidents, President Abraham Lincoln.

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

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

“In the end, it’s not the years in your life that count. It’s the life in your years.”

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

“Whatever you are, be a good one.”

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

“That some achieve great success, is proof to all that others can achieve it as well.”

“When I am getting ready to reason with a man, I spend one-third of my time thinking about myself and what I am going to say and two-thirds about him and what he is going to say.”

What lessons have you learned from the presidents?
