Quote-Meme Day (observed)

As President Trump reminded us yesterday, Abraham Lincoln is best remembered not for the things he did and said, but for the words he never had a chance to say, having tragically died or something 14 years before the invention of saccharin.

We wanted to honor other major historical figures in the most respectful way possible: by spending three minutes on BrainyQuote and sticking what we found onto photos — centered and in all caps, for maximum profundity .

Please share widely and uncritically.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
