The wisdom of Abraham Lincoln... (part 4)

"You have to do your own growing
             no matter how tall your grandfather was."
Abraham Lincoln (1809-1865)
16th President of the United States

Abe had his own way of sagely deflating the pompous ones and the imprudently ambitious ones who crossed his path.

"You have to do your own growing…" is a corollary of the maxim that "You can't live someone else's life."

It's your life.

Opportunities for personal growth, including the kind that hurts a little, are everywhere and every day…

What do you want to be when you grow up?

More from Old Abe.....

...and more of Lincoln's savvy....

...and a little more....
