- THE WIT AND WISDOM OF ABRAHAM LINCOLN - A book of Quotations - Dover Thrift Editions
DetailsThe most eloquent of American presidents, Lincoln seemed to have a comment - sagacious or humorous - on just about anything that mattered. This concise compendium offers his astute observations on a variety of subjects-from women to warfare.Nearly 400 quotations include such thought-provoking and memorable remarks as: Bad promises are better broken than kept. Marriage is neither heaven nor hell; it is simply purgatory. Whenever I hear anyone arguing for slavery, I feel a strong impulse to see it tried on him personally.Quotations are arranged chronologically within such topics as family and friends, the law, politics and the presidency, story-telling, religion, and morality. Students, writers, public speakers, and other readers will find this thought-provoking and entertaining volume an excellent introduction to the sixteenth presidents wit, common sense, and insight.
