We Are All in Various Stages of “Mental Illness”

Lincoln was so totally and completely himself that he was often criticized for his public tears and melancholy, and perceived as being weak by his critics.

An English journalist, after visiting the U.S., wrote, “Abraham Lincoln was regarded as a failure. Why he was elected, nobody, to this day, seems to know.”

Edward Everett, Senator and Harvard professor observed, “He is evidently a person of very inferior cast of character, wholly unequal to the crisis.”

Who was more mental? Lincoln or his critics?

Since we are all subject to being so wrong when we think we are so right, why not lighten up about ourselves? We only need to look back and remember the stupid stuff we have said and done to be reminded.

Judge not.
