Abraham Lincoln – Orator Extraordinaire

“The best way to predict the future is to create it.”
-Abraham Lincoln

Abraham Lincoln

Recently, I’ve been reading the amazing book Team of Rivals by, Doris Kearns Goodwin.  Throughout the book, the reader is given a front-row seat to history as Abraham Lincoln’s words are brought to life and you imagine yourself sitting in the audience listening to him.  As I’ve made my way from Illinois to Washington with Mr. Lincoln, I recently found myself searching the internet for inspirational quotes from one of our greatest orators.  It is at this point that I stumbled up the gem above.  I could probably talk/type for hours about what the quote means to me (and maybe I’ll do that one day), but for now, I just wanted to pass it on.
