Since listening to our politicians for the last many months, I think that most could use a few gems of wisdom from America's sixteenth president, Abraham Lincoln.
"Let not him who is houseless pull down the house of another, but let him work diligently and build one for himself, thus by example assuring that his own shall be safe from violence when built."
"I remember my mother's prayers and they have always followed me. They have clung to me all my life."
"I am a firm believer in the people. If given the truth, they can be depended upon to meet any national crisis. The great point is to bring them the real facts."
"It is better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to open one's mouth and remove all doubt."
Thanks, Honest Abe!
