Abraham Lincoln is the most frequently quoted United States President. In this fascinating compendium are the best, funniest and most profound sayings of this most quotable of Chief Executives. The quotes are arranged according to subject, providing a bit of Lincoln wit and wisdom for any situation. From his youth in pioneer Illinois to the embattled White House of the Civil War, Abraham Lincoln never lost his capacity for dry humor--or his extraordinary gift of eloquence. .
Though he did not live long enough to write his memoirs, John Fitzgerald Kennedy left behind a legacy of wit and wisdom that still informs the lives and hopes of the American people today. Known for his courage and charisma, he embodied the youthful, optimistic spirit of the mid-20th century American. Yet, he could also be irreverent. When questioned as to how he became a hero in World War II, he replied it was "involuntary--they sank my boat.".
Arranged alphabetically by topic, from Adam to Youth, and culled from his novels, speeches, letters, and conversations, this anthology of quotes is timeless and represents the very essence of Mark Twain -- hilarious, cranky, and insightful.
