Abraham Lincoln Quote

(Imagine your own home pictured here.)
Property is the fruit of labor. Property is desirable...is a positive good in the world. That some should be rich shows that others may become rich, and hence is just encouragement to industry and enterprise. Let not him who is houseless pull down the house of another; but let him labor diligently and build one for himself, thus by example assuring that his own shall be safe from violence when built. ~Abraham Lincoln

Quoted from Liberty and Tyranny by Mark Levin.

  2. Absolutely. The wisdom in that statement. "Let not him who is houseless pull down the house of another..."

    This should be required reading.

  7. Great quote! I know that some people are a bit envious of our property, but I don't apologize for it. We started out with NOTHING 28 years ago. We worked hard and saved, saved, saved. What we have is a direct result of our hard work and diligence. We did not achieve what we have overnight, and there was great sacrifice all along the way.

  8. Abraham Lincoln was such a forward thinker for his time, wasn't he?

  9. Hello, I had a nice time visiting your blog. In fact, I subscribed to your blog feed. The Shawshank Redemption is one of my favorites also. I like prison stories of all kinds. Remember the one, The Birdman of Alcatraz? Loved it.
    Take care,

  11. Vee,
    You are one of the most inspiring bloggers that I have ever met! I have never read a post that you have written that I did not enjoy. Your sincerity continues to inspire me! Now !enough of this mush.

    To not blog this week was not easy for me, and I truly missed everyone!! Have a very blessed Sunday.

  12. Oh the Wisdom of that man!!! Isn't it amazing, that one mind, brought forth so many, many pieced of articulate Wisdom, for the ages. Bless him.

    And btw, I've always thought that he was handsome. Not ugly or any of those derisive things said about him. Not gangly... A tall and commanding presence. Yes, *Hot* even! Before they coined that word! So there. :-)

  13. Eeeeeeeek! Got carried away, appreciating male neatness, and forgot why I came to comment! ,-)

  14. Tried to access the blog, you told me of, which speaks of 'Grey Gardens.' It looks like a lovely blog, but it takes a long loading time. Not sure why, but... -sigh-

    Perhaps another time, I'll go back and follow the link, she gives.

    Hope the top photo is of the place, today. Restored, as was wanted. How lovely it is.

  19. Hi Vee, just dropping by - I love that giant yellow tree - is that forsythia? I just bought a branch for my living room - I believe it is too cold to grow here. Hope you are well. I have a lot of catching up to do but might just try a little each day. Are you well?
