Great Motto for our Daily Lives

"With Malice toward none, with charity for all, with firmness in the right, as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in, to bind up the nation's wounds." Abraham Lincoln

I found this quote on one of my facebook friend's profiles, and I found it very fitting for the daily life we live.  We should hold no malice towards others, although we may see differently, and have firm beliefs and ideas that would differ with those who seek malice against us.  We should be charitable to others, and help those in need.  We should be firm in our endeavors to seek justice.  We should  never give up on our goals in life, and strive to finish what we start...always seek to accomplish more.  I believe that in order to have a positive attitude in life, we must seek the good in others.  Sometimes this is very hard to do, yet we can still strive to attain this goal.  God bless each and everyone of you.

Hi Deb, That is a great motto to live by. I truly wish we could ALL get along--despite our differences. This world is such a mess... Only God can save us!!!!

Yes, Betsy, we should. The world is a terrible place right now, but God is our salvation, and our maker. He and only HE can make things right for all of us.

Lincoln said so many great things to live by. I wish we had a couple of him in Congress right now. Thanks for the inspiration.
