Abraham Lincoln

Abraham Lincoln is considered by many scholars to have been the best President. He is credited with holding the Union together and leading the North to victory in the Civil War. Further, his actions and beliefs led to the emancipation of African-Americans from the bonds of slavery. Today we have President Trump, trying to right by America and the American people but the criminal democrats aren't going to let him accomplish anything productive! Sad.

Arbraham Lincoln Quotes

Whatever you are, be a good one

I do not think much of a man who is not wiser today than he was yesterday

You cannot escape the responsibility of tomorrow by evading it today

What is conservatism? Is it not the adherence to the old and tried against the new and untried?

You cannot escape the responsibility of tomorrow by evading it today

If I only had an hour to chop down a tree, I would spend the first 45 minutes sharpening my axe

I remember my mother's prayers and they have always followed me. They have clung to me all my life.

      This year I vowed to read a book on each of the U.S. Presidents. I'm just starting on Harry Truman now. Interesting lens!

      I am reading a biography of Abraham Lincoln written in the late 1800's...I am fascinated by his wife as well, did a lens about her.

      Apparently the Abraham Lincoln haters of the following web site don't like opposing and challenging points of view, so I must take their article and my response elsewhere to their shame. It really is an eye opener, as it reveals that those who hate so do a couple of basic things: They distort facts, or skew them; and they censure comments to their liking. response which was censured out:Jackson once lifted his glass in the midst of antagonists and proclaimed, "The Union! It must be preserved!" and then he walked out. I lift my glass to Abraham Lincoln and say, "To his beloved memory, it must be preserved among all Americans!"Addressing itemized Lincoln criticisms Abraham Lincoln in Perspective:

      Great list of books about Lincoln. He was an incredible inspiration and its sometimes hard to separate fact from fiction. As a Houston Personal Injury Lawyer I try to use his example as a model in how my practice treats people and approaches problems. Hard work, values, and values. Mr. President is missed.

      Hi Barbara,Awesome lens! I've bookmarked and will come back to it. Lincoln is such a fascinating individual. He would have commanded quite a few $$$$ were he on the self-help circuit today ;) Thanks for sharing your insight :)Ryan
