The 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 president’s wit, common sense, and insight.

    “It is very common in this country to find great facility of expression and less common to find great lucidity of thought,” he told a British journalist. “The combination of the two in one person is very uncommon; but whenever you do find it, you have a great man.”
