Happy Birthday Mr. President...

"Whatever you are, be a good one."

"Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt."

"I am not bound to win, but I am bound to be true. I am not bound to succeed, but I am bound to live by the light that I have."

I must stand with anybody that stands right, and stand with him while he is right, and part with him when he goes wrong."

"Sir, my concern is not whether God is on our side; my greatest concern is to be on God's side, for God is always right."

"Whenever I hear any one arguing for slavery I feel a strong impulse to see it tried on him personally."

"Die when I may, I want it said by those who knew me best that I always plucked a thistle and planted a flower where I thought a flower would grow."

"And in the end it's not the years in your life that count. It's the life in your years."

~Abraham Lincoln
