“You wouldn’t worry so much about what others think of you if you realized how seldom they do.” – Eleanor Roosevelt

From “Lincoln 365,” by Arnold Kunst
August 3
Lincoln liked to tell the story of a seedy fellow asking Secretary of State Seward for a consulate in Berlin, then Paris, then Liverpool, eventually coming down to a clerkship in the State Department. Hearing these places were all filled, he said, 'well, then, can you lend me $5?'

'A people-pleaser will know exactly what to do, whom to associate with, what to think, where to go, and especially what to do with his money - just as soon as someone tells him.'
- Arnold Kunst
