The Wit And Wisdom Of Abraham Lincoln

Item#: 217574




Abraham Lincoln's ability to write great speeches, make witty remarks and tell stories has made him America's most quoted President. You may fool all the people some of the time, you can even fool some of the people all of the time; but you can't fool all of the people all of the time is perhaps our nation's most famous aphorism, and now it joins Lincoln's best one-liners, anecdotes, and advice in a delightful topic-by-topic collection of Lincolnisms. Also included are Lincoln's funniest satires on his least favorite general; his well-known repartee in defense of Ulysses S. Grant's drinking; his own comments on the important events of his life; and accounts by contemporaries such as Walt Whitman, Leo Tolstoy, and Oliver Wendell Holmes.
