Hi Debra! Our posts are so similar, how fun! Did you see mine? You are lucky enough to have an Abraham Lincoln postcard. Very nice. Thanks for sharing those quotes too. Have a great week! Gina

My two favorite Presidents. I always think of Washington and Lincoln in February. Guess that shows that I am of "a certain age". Their birthdays were separate and important Holidays when I was young. Their wisdom still holds true as reflected in these quotes you've chosen. Thank you for honoring these gentlemen.
