Since today is Lincoln’s Birthday I decided to share some Lincoln quotes. I will also share a few images of Abraham Lincoln that I have shared in other posts.
A lawyer once asked Mr. Lincoln if the county-seat of Logan County was named after him. Lincoln replied:
Well, it was named after I was.
Lincoln was once asked for a pass through the Union lines and on to Richmond. Lincoln replied:
I should be very happy to oblige you, if my passes were respected; but the fact is, within the past two years I have given passes to Richmond to two hundred and fifty thousand men, and not one has got there yet.
Character was like a tree, and reputation like its shadow. The shadow is what we think of it; the tree is the real thing.
I should think a man’s legs ought to be long enough to reach from his body to the ground.
My mind is like a piece of steel — very hard to scratch anything on it, and almost impossible, after you get it there, to rub it out.
I don’t know who my grandfather was, and I am much more concerned to know what his grandson will be.
