- Dover Thrift Editions: LINCOLN : A Book of Quotations
Details"All I have learned, I learned from books," declared Abraham Lincoln - and this book offers ample learning from the sixteenth president's wise and often witty remarks. Drawn from speeches, letters, and other sources, these thoughts and opinions range from considerations of human nature and spirituality to the burdens and privileges of the presidency along with many other topics of enduring interest.Selections include comments onmorality ("It has been my experience that folks who have no vices have very few virtues.") andthe pursuit of happiness ("Folks are usually about as happy as they make their minds up to be.") as well as friendship ("I'm a success today because I had a friend who believed in me and I didn't have the heart to let him down."),human frailty ("It's not me who can't keep a secret. It's the people I tell that can't."), andother thought-provoking subjects.ABOUT THE AUTHOR: An English professor at the City University of New York's Kingsborough College, Bob Blaisdell is the editor of numerous Dover Thrift Editions and many other books.
