What others have said about books and reading:

Any book that helps a child to form a habit of reading, to make reading one of his deep and continuing needs, is good for him.          ~ Maya Angelou

A book is a dream that you hold in your hand. ~ Neil Gaiman

There are many little ways to enlarge your child’s world. Love of books is the best of all. ~ Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis

There are perhaps no days of our childhood we lived so fully as those we spent with a favorite book. ~ Marcel Proust

The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go. ~ Dr. Seuss

Sage Advise From Abraham Lincoln

July 14, 2016

Recently, I made a trip back to my hometown of Lincoln, Illinois. Having been named in honor of Abraham Lincoln, the town is filled with his memorabilia. Lincoln was a wise and witty individual who had the ability to inspire others. Below are some thought-provoking quotes from Lincoln that can be applied to our lives today.

America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.

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.

Those who deny freedom to others deserve it not for themselves; and under the rule of a just God, cannot long retain it.

A house divided against itself cannot stand.

The philosophy of the school room in one generation will be the philosophy of government in the next.

Upon the subject of education, not presuming to dictate any plan or system respecting it, I can only say that I view it as the most important subject which we, as a people, can be engaged in.

The better part of one’s life consists of his friendships.

Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than speak out and remove all doubt.

What kills a skunk is the publicity it gives itself.

My dream is of a place and a time where America will once again be seen as the last best hope of Earth.
