You forgot the following quotes:

"The movie about me ('Lincoln') should be seen by everyone."

And don't forget...

"Spielberg is the greatest movie director I've ever known."

American Fork, UT

“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, and beer." - Abraham Lincoln.
You're right, he was a great man.

Nibley, Ut

Here is one of my favorites not on the list:
"Property is the fruit of labor...property is desirable...is a positive good in the world. That some should be rich shows that others may become rich, and hence is just encouragement to industry and enterprise. Let not him who is houseless pull down the house of another; but let him labor diligently and build one for himself, thus by example assuring that his own shall be safe from violence when built." -Abraham Lincoln March 21 1864
