What a world it would be, if politicians told the truth!
Lately I have been finding it difficult to believe our politician on either side of the isle.
This distresses me, because on first blush, I tend to believe what people tell me. Unfortunately I'm on the third and fourth blush with many.
So this week for Quotable Sunday, I decided to revisit a favorite President of mine known for his honestly.
President Abraham Lincoln was often referred to as Honest Abe.
Below are some of the quotes on truthfulness attributed to him
How refreshing! :)
1. How many legs does a dog have if you call the tail a leg?
Four; calling a tail a leg doesn't make it a leg.
2. You can fool some of the people all of the time, and all of the people some of the time, but you can not fool all of the people all of the time.
3. It is said an Eastern monarch once charged his wise men to invent him a sentence to be ever in view, and which should be true and appropriate in all times and situations. They presented him the words: And this, too, shall pass away.
4.Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt.
5.Character is like a tree and reputation like a shadow. The shadow is what we think of it; the tree is the real thing.
6.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.
7.If I were two-faced, would I be wearing this one?
My all time favorite is number two;
Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt.
