THE LINCOLN LOG: We the people " "
In Lincoln`s mind, government is not something separate from the people. Government is not something to be ridiculed or despised. Government is not they.
In this country, government is us. Government is people whom we elect, plus government workers "the clerks, and mail carriers, and police, and forest rangers, and secretaries--are our neighbors.
American government is we--powerfully asserted in the preamble to the Constitution of the United States.
Lincoln himself memorably expressed this sentiment at Gettysburg:, that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth. "
Adapted from The Words Lincoln Lived By " by Gene Griessman (Fireside-Simon & Schuster, 1997, p. 81)
Advice from Abraham Lincoln
"Lincoln spent a lifetime acquiring material that he could plug into his speeches "ready-made modules to fit the moment. He memorized poems and Bible passages. He immersed himself in newspapers and books and written sermons. He knew thousands of jokes and humorous stories and even carried a joke book with him so that he could adapt traditional stories to local situations. Lincoln spent hours, sometimes years preparing for his "extemporaneous" presentations...." Adapted from "The Achievement Digest."
