Happy Birthday Abraham Lincoln!

Today is the birthday of the 16th president of the United States, Abraham Lincoln. Regarded as one of the most popular presidents in history, I guess I'd have to say he was my favorite too.


Being a quote collector, I often come across things he said that really hits home. Like him, I am an Aquarius, the sign of people who are often misunderstood for being a bit ahead of their time.

Here are some of my favorite quotations by my man, Abraham Lincoln.:

"People are about as happy as they make up their mind to be."

"I want it said of me by those who knew me best, that I always plucked a thistle and planted a flower where I thought a flower would grow."

"Always bear in mind that your own resolution to success is more important than any other one thing."

"Whatever you are, be a good one."
