Wit and Wisdom from the Frontier President
President Lincoln's thoughts on an astounding range of subjects have not only become classic observations about the human condition in turn-of-the-century America, but also continue to amuse, teach, and inspire us today.
Like the highly successful Bite-Size Einstein and Bite-Size Twain, Bite-Size Lincoln is a compilation of this historic American's famous and eloquent words. A hard life on the American frontier taught Lincoln common sense and a healthy respect for honesty and plain dealing. Organized by categories that encompass his wide-ranging observations and commentary, Bite-Size Lincoln is an enjoyable read and a concise, informative, and useful reference for anyone seeking the perfect thought to suit any situation.
Some Lincoln classics include:
o "Always bear in mind that your own resolution to succeed is more important than any other one thing."
o "So hard is it to have a thing understood as it really is."
o "The best thing about the future is that it only comes one day at a time."
o "If destruction be our lot we must ourselves be its author and finisher."
