“He who laughs – lasts.” - Norwegian proverb

From “Lincoln 365,” by Arnold Kunst
January 18
After losing the Senate race to Stephen Douglas, the leader of the Democrats in the Senate, in 1858, Lincoln said he felt like the boy who stubbed his toe: 'it hurt too bad to laugh and he was too big to cry.'

'If I were given the opportunity to present a gift to the next generation it would be the ability for each individual to learn to laugh at himself.'
- Charles M. Schulz
