Abraham Lincoln’s Birthday

Here are some of our favorite Lincoln-isms to help celebrate what would have been Honest Abe’s 203rd birthday:

“I destroy my enemies when I make them my friends.”

“I like to see a man proud of the place in which he lives. I like to see a man live so that his place will be proud of him.”

“If you call a tail a leg, how many legs has a dog? Five? No, calling a tail a leg don’t make it a leg.”

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

“It is better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to open one’s mouth and remove all doubt.”

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