From “Lincoln 365,” by Arnold Kunst
'It is said an Eastern monarch once charged his wise men to invent him a sentence to be ever in view and which should be true and appropriate in all times and situations. They presented him the words: “And this, too, shall pass away.” How much it expresses! How chastening in the hour of pride! How consoling in the depths of affliction!'
- Abraham Lincoln
'Patience is the infallible hallmark of genius, abiding as the everlasting hills.'
