Smiling with Abe

ALincoln-face2Many noble and inspiring statements have been made by the two men we honor on Presidents’ Day.Abraham-Lincoln

But it’s Snark Monday, right? So I went searching for witty quips.

In the end, I couldn’t resist Honest Abe.

But Mr Lincoln was just as merciless with himself when he tossed off this snappy gem:

“If I were two-faced, would I be wearing this one?”

Three cheers for a man who is not pretentious!

Another time I will share some of the thought-provoking things Abraham Lincoln said. But for now we’ll smile with him. And maybe think twice before posting those selfies? Happy Monday!

    1. Thank you for the list, Robin. Yes, Mr Reagan was a master of the quick witted response. After he was shot, for example, here’s what he told Nancy: “Sorry, honey, I forgot to duck.”


      1. Happiness is a choice. Sometimes, it’s a hard choice. That’s where faith comes in — choosing to praise in the bleakest of times, knowing that it’s only for a season and that joy comes in the morning.
