"I do not like the man. I must get to know him better."
Abraham Lincoln (1809-1865)
16th President of the United States
Why is it that so many quotes from Lincoln conjure up another quote from someone else?
Here's one that's related but is really a different point of view:
"Keep your friends close, and your enemies closer."
The source of this beauty is disputed. It sounds like something Sun-Tzu would have said but apparently he didn't. Machiavelli should have said it, but apparently he sort of did, but less elegantly, in his characteristic, more convoluted style……
I guess we all know Don Corleone said it best.
