I've always said that you identify the Greatness and Stature of a man - or woman - by the number of inspired Quotations they leave us.
I could easily have filled several pages with the Quotations of Abraham Lincoln.

And one of the tests of Wisdom is how well such Quotations apply over time.

it will be because we destroyed ourselves.”
― Abraham Lincoln

― Abraham Lincoln

“Stand with anyone that is right; stand with him while he is right
