Quotes from Abraham Lincoln

21 Feb

In honor of President’s day I am posting some quotes from my favorite president -Abraham Lincoln.

Hope you enjoy reading them!

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

“I do the very best I know how – the very best I can; and I mean to keep on doing so until the end.”

“Whatever you are, be a good one.”

“People are just as happy as they make up their minds to be.”

 “My Best Friend is a person who will give me a book I have not read.”

“When I do good, I feel good. When I do bad, I feel bad. That’s my religion.”

“When you reach the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on.”

AND FINALLY…..

“You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich.
You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong.
You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift.
You cannot lift the wage earner up by pulling the wage payer down.
You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred.
You cannot build character and courage by taking away men’s initiative and independence.
You cannot help men permanently by doing for them, what they could and should do for themselves.”

HAPPY PRESIDENT’S DAY!!
