Am I not destroying my enemies when I make friends of them?”   —   Abraham Lincoln

(My pappy said “Son, you’re gonna drive me to drinkin’, if you don’t stop drivin’ that hod rod Lincoln.  A little Commander Cody to lighten up the uber solemnity of today’s quote.  Our country’s birthday is coming right up, so let’s all get high and mighty, wave those pom-poms, and put forth our patented holier than thou attitudes.  Sponsored by Coca Cola!  Don’t get me wrong.  Abe was the man!  And, I believe this quote was in reference to the abomination of slavery.  But, we’re not as “free” as we purport to be.  And, we’re definitely not as free as we used to be.  I could go on at length, but it seems the more I write the less response I get.  So, I’ll leave it to you guys to ruminate over what I have said.  I’ve got other things to get to today, anyway.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Always bear in mind that your own resolution to succeed is more important than any other one thing.”   —   Abraham Lincoln

(Unfortunately, it’s not always easy to bear this in mind.  So many more emotionally negative and defeatist elements kind of force this thoughtful consideration into submission.  No matter how rational we like to think we are, emotions are often too hard to fight.  We all need thicker skins, for Abe’s advice to really take hold.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

(It must be all that make-up sex!!!  I’m sure most of you have received the email forward of “useless facts” that says a pig’s orgasm lasts 30 minutes.  It makes me wonder how many pigs die from heart failure?  Oops!  Here’s one, now!  Enjoy the rest of your weekend, friends.  Peace.)   —   YUR

When I hear a man preach, I want to see him act as if  he were fighting bees.”   — Abraham Lincoln

(Very amusing quote.  Such a great sense of imagery.  Hallelujah, brother sister!)   —   YUR

If there is anything that a man can do well, I say let him do it.  Give him a chance.”   — Abraham Lincoln

(I wonder how old Abe would feel about the title character in the Showtime television show, “Dexter”???)   — YUR

Things may come to those who wait, but only the things left by those who hustle.”   — Abraham Lincoln

(Gee.  Today’s religious right would likely bring up old Abe on charges of heresy, for that statement!) YUR

Give me six hours to chop down a tree and I will spend the first four sharpening the axe.”   — Abraham Lincoln

(Preparation is instrumental to a desired outcome.  It’s only us folk who think we know better who try to wing it, or end up cramming at the eleventh hour.  You’d think us *geniuses* would eventually get it . . . but no!) —   YUR

Force is all-conquering, but its victories are short-lived.”   — Abraham Lincoln

Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man’s character, give him power.”   — Abraham Lincoln
