Abraham Lincoln Birthday 2017


When I do good, I feel good.
When I do bad, I feel bad.
That's my religion.
- Abraham Lincoln

About morals: I know only that
what is moral is what you feel good after
and what is immoral is what you feel bad after.
- Ernest Hemingway

If you look for the bad in people
expecting to find it, you surely will.
- Abraham Lincoln

If I had eight hours to chop down a tree,
I'd spend six hours sharpening my ax.
- Abraham Lincoln

When I am getting ready to reason with a man,
I spend one-third of my time thinking about myself
and what I am going to say
and two-thirds about him and what he is going to say.
- Abraham Lincoln
