Abraham Lincoln Influential Wisdom

Abraham Lincoln was the 16 President of United States. The self taught lawyer from Illinois led United States through Civil War and brought about the emancipation of slaves

One of my favorite President of United States, due to his remarkable impact on country and unique methods to do it.

I think his story is a perfect example of rising from humble starting and then reach to one of the top most position in America.

I think it is the difference of thinking, which made him President:

  1. Spend Life to Serve Others
  2. Not able to see slavery ,because its injustice to anyone’s basic human rights
  3. To make a world better place to live, with the help of peace/non-violence

Imagine if every one of us would have thoughts like this, isn’t the World would become more beautiful.

As he was physically higher (6 Feet-4 Inch height), he was more higher in his thoughts .

Let’s take a look inside the mind of most influential people of his era.
