Quotes for Public Speakers (No. 71) – Abraham Lincoln

Abraham Lincoln (1809 – 1865) 16th President of the United States

“They say I tell a great many stories; I reckon I do, but I have found in the course of a long experience that common people, take them as they run, are more easily informed through the medium of a broad illustration than in any other way. And as to what the hypercritical few may think, I don’t care.” — Abraham Lincoln
