I spent some time, once, doing research about Abraham Lincoln for a project. I thought for sure that I would find that the man was more myth than real. I was mistaken. He was the genuine article.
One of the things that appealed to me was Lincoln's sense of humor. He told many stories, and more often than not, his stories poked fun at himself. When accused by a rival of being "two-faced," Lincoln responded, "If I were two-faced, would I be wearing this one?" I'm sure Lincoln would have been very surprised to know that his craggy visage today appears in everyone's pocket!
