Happy Birthday Lincoln and Darwin!

I'd like to thank Mike for reminding me that today is Abraham Lincoln's birthday. In fact, 199 years ago, both Abraham Lincoln and Charles Darwin were born on this day (which means their bicentennial birthdays will be next year). Their views and philosophies are timeless, so if you're feeling sluggish and lazy today, here are some inspirational quotes for you...

"Leave nothing for tomorrow which can be done today." - Lincoln

"A man who dares to waste one hour of time has not discovered the value of life." - Darwin

And here's one that suits me...

I am rather inclined to silence, and whether that be wise or not, it is at least more unusual nowadays to find a man who can hold his tongue than to find one who cannot." -Lincoln
