One spring day, Dale Carnegie was breakfasting at a hotel in London. He came across a column in the Morning Post newspaper entitled "Men and Memories". On that particular morning and for several mornings following, that column was devoted to Abraham Lincoln — the personal side of his career.
Carnegie read those with profound interest, and surprise. He had always been interested in the United States history. Aroused by the articles in the Morning Post, Carnegie went over to the British Museum Library and read a number of Lincoln books; the more he read, the more fascinated he became. Finally he determined to write a book on Lincoln, himself.
Abraham Lincoln, a farm boy, becomes the President of the United States. He travels miles to borrow books; reading being the dominant passion of his for quarter of a century. He mourns the loss of his first love his whole life. He humors his colleagues in the White House, and lives with the difficulties of the marriage with his second love, while in war with the South.
The Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C., was dedicated to him on May 30, 1922.
In 2012 was released “Lincoln “, a biographical historical drama film directed and produced by Steven Spielberg. At the 85th Academy Awards, the movie won two Oscars. It was also a commercial success, grossing over $275 million at the box office.
“Give me six hours to chop down a tree
and I will spend the first four sharpening the axe.”
— Abraham Lincoln
