Abraham Lincoln

Abraham Lincoln

On Wisdom:
I don’t think much of a man who is not wiser today than he was yesterday.

On Women:
Others have been made fools of by the girls, but this can never with truth be said of me. I most emphatically, in this instance, made a fool of myself.

On Policy:
I have never had a policy. I have simply tried to do what seemed best each day, as each day came.

On God:
I never behold them [the heavens filled with stars] that I do not feel I am looking in the face of God. I can see how it might be possible for a man to look down upon the earth and be an atheist, but I cannot conceive how he could look up into the heavens and say there is no God.

On Work:
I am always for the man who wishes to work.

And Finally:
All that I am, or hope to be, I owe to my angel mother. I remember her prayers, and they have always followed me. They have clung to me all my life.

Profound thoughts.
