Abraham Lincoln Quotes-Featured Image

Abraham Lincoln quotes are inspirations for the flourishing of our life. Success is at the top, where you can reach only by ascending the steep stairs of failure. Abraham Lincoln, America’s 16th President, spent his childhood in poverty so much that his family had to stumble to find a house. His father did not even have enough money to send Abraham Lincoln to school. To feed his stomach, he started working as a laborer since childhood. Abraham studied from the books demanded from the people. When he stood against slavery, he had to face defeat many times that too.

He failed in business and elections over and over. For instance, at the age of 47, he could not become Vice President, and then at the age of 49, he lost the election to the Senate. His wife died at the age of 26, due to which he became a victim of a Nervous Breakdown. The quality in him was that despite losing so many times in 30 years, he was not disappointed at all; instead, he continued to struggle ahead with new enthusiasm every time. For him, each defeat was just a moment’s hindrance, not an end. On the strength of his struggle, he finally won the election of the 16th President of America and abolished slavery.  So, today let’s learn something great together through some of my favorite Abraham Lincoln quotes.

Here are 53 of the most inspiring Abraham Lincoln quotes to dream big and achieve bigger in life. I believe these Abraham Lincoln quotes will encourage you never to give up in life and pursue humanity.
