Abe Lincoln for Inspiration

Abe Lincoln's Platform
I was working on a quilt block today called Abe Lincoln's Platform and thought this would be the perfect time to show what an inspirational and thought-provoking man he was as well.

Some thoughts by Honest Abe:
  • "In the end, it's not the years in your life that count. It's the life in your years."
  • "It has been my experience that folks who have no vices have very few virtues."
and finally ... don't forget to smell those roses ...
  • "We can complain because rose bushes have thorns, or rejoice because thorn bushes have roses."
    Abraham Lincoln
