“If you don’t like something, change it. If you can’t change it, change your attitude. Don’t complain.” – Maya Angelou

From “Lincoln 365,” by Arnold Kunst
August 13
‘Lincoln was a man of great compassion, but that isn’t to say he couldn’t be tough. When Kansas Senator Pomeroy, an early recipient of Lincoln’s largesse, was shown, to Lincoln’s satisfaction, to have contributed too energetically to the Chase-for-President effort [Salmon Chase, Lincoln’s brilliant Secretary of the Treasury, wanted very much to be president himself in 1864, but got other Republican figures outside the Cabinet to head up his effort], Lincoln ended the Kansan’s access to the federal gravy train.’
- Arnold Kunst

‘Rule number one in politics: a politician, once bought, either stays bought or suffers the consequences.’
