Words to Live By

If I were to try to read, much less answer, all the attacks made on me, this shop might as well be closed for any other business. I do the very best I know how - the very best I can; and I mean to keep doing so until the end. If the end brings me out all right, what's said against me won't amount to anything. If the end brings me out wrong, ten angels swearing I was right would make no difference.
-Abraham Lincoln

I want to live my life this way.
I want to be a woman deeply committed to finding what my heart says is right and living it out, doing the best I can, as long as I can, until the end.
