Happy Birthday Abraham Lincoln

One of the characteristics we see in Abraham Lincoln is his sense of humor - his great wit. Here is a story that shows this best: When Abe's father didn't need him on the farm, he sent him out to work for other people.~~~Some people said that Abe Lincoln was just about the best worker in Indiana. They said he could do the work of three men.~~~ Other people said that Abe was lazy. Didn't he always have a book in his hand? And wasn't he always stopping to read, or think, or tell funny stories? ~~~Abe had an answer for that.~~~~~`"My father taught me to work," he said. "But he never taught me to love it."
