Wise Words from Abraham Lincoln

Abe Lincoln, be a good oneHappy Birthday to good Ol’ Honest Abe. Mr. Lincoln is essentially writing my blog for me today, to give us all some food for thought. Times have certainly changed from the 150 years ago when he was our president, but his wise words still hold a lot of value, reminding us of how to live today.





  • “America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.”
  • “You can fool all the people some of the time, and some of the people all the time, but you cannot fool all the people all the time.”
  • “Don’t interfere with anything in the Constitution. That must be maintained, for it is the only safeguard of our liberties.”
  • “Whatever you are, be a good one.”
  •  “We can complain because rose bushes have thorns, or rejoice because thorn bushes have roses.”
  •  “When you reach the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on.”
  • “You cannot escape the responsibility of tomorrow by evading it today.”
  •  “The worst thing you can do for anyone you care about is anything that they can do on their own.”
  •  “Live a good life. In the end it is not the years in a life, but the life in the years.”
  •  “Life is hard but so very beautiful”
