Lincoln’s Wit/Wisdom 176

Lincoln had trouble dealing with pretense in any form. During the Mexican War Lincoln was 'reminded' of old time militia rules. “No man is to wear more than five pounds of cod-fish for epaulets, or more than thirty yards of bologna sausages for a sash; and no two men are to dress alike, and if any two should dress alike the one that dresses most alike is to be fined.”'
- Abraham Lincoln
