Abraham Lincoln

Words of Encouragement

In this sad world of ours, sorrow comes to all . . .
...It comes with bitterest agony . . .
Perfect relief is not possible, except with time.
You cannot now realize that you will ever feel better . . .
And yet this is a mistake.
You are sure to be happy again.
To know this, which is certainly true,
Will make you some less miserable now.
I have had experience enough to know what I say.

~Abraham Lincoln. Three of Abe Lincoln's sons died: Edward, age 4; William, age 11; and Thomas, age 18.
