#16 Abraham Lincoln (1861-1865)

The sixteenth president of the United States: Abraham Lincoln.

Definitely my favorite of the presidents.  I can't help but lament that they just don't make politicians like this anymore: honest and honorable.

I think most people know his history, so instead I'll write down a couple of my favorite Lincoln quotes:

"It has been my experience that folks who have no vices have very few virtues."

"Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt."
