"Most folks are about as happy as they make up their minds to be."
- Abraham Lincoln
But then I got reading and couldn't resist these other gems, and since they cost nothing to post and they are guilt free, I figured it was ok to indulge. ;) So here are a few of my other favorites from Abraham Lincoln:
"Always bear in mind that your own resolution to succeed is more important than any one thing."
"Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt.
"Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man's character, give him power."
Two of these, the first and third of the four posted, run through my mind often, along with this one from my grandmother: "You feel sorry for a mad dog, but you can't let it bite you" and this one attributed to Napoleon Bonaparte: "Never ascribe to malice that which is adequately explained by incompetence." Wise words!
Do you think of famous quotes often or not at all? What runs through your mind?
Happy Monday! Have a great week. :)
