Midweek Meditation

This past Sunday was the 203rd birthday of our 16th president.

While checking my Abraham Lincoln quote from last week, I learned that Steven Spielberg had just finished shooting Lincoln, which will be released in theaters December 2012.

"You're asking me about 2011?  I've been living in the 19th century.  There are no comparisons between Lincoln and Obama.  No president has ever had to endure and resolve a civil war and abolish slavery within a four year period."  ~ Steven Spielberg, Rollingstone Magazine, 2011 In Review (Dec 22, 2011- Jan 5, 2012)

"A house divided against itself cannot stand. All my life I have tried to pluck a thistle and plant a flower wherever the flower would grow in thought and mind."  ~ Abraham Lincoln
