I know his birthday was yesterday, but there are SO many wise words attributed to this colossal US President that I wanted to share a few more quotes that might challenge, remind, guide, and inspire us. So here are a few more quotes to contemplate throughout your day:
“You cannot escape the responsibility of tomorrow by evading it today.”
Ouch! reality check – avoiding and evading will get us into WAY more trouble than facing responsibilities ever will. Own the truth or the lies will own you.
“The best thing about the future is that it comes one day at a time.”
Wise words, indeed. We can only live this life one day at a time. That said, the is certainly some value in being aware of the future – not to obsess or worry about the future, but to be mindful that our actions today will send forth “ripples” into countless tomorrows.
And one more future-minded quote serves to challenge us to act now:
“The best way to predict your future is to create it”
Thank you, Mr. President. For my two cents, you make LOTS of sense!
Pick a Lincoln quote today to ponder as you wander, and have a beaYOUtiful day, OK? http://ow.ly/i/CPze4
