Abraham Lincoln - Being nobody vs being evil

Abraham Lincoln – Being nobody vs being evil

< !DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-html40/loose.dtd">

I would rather be a little nobody in life then to be a evil somebody.

Famous Abe would do anything to not be evil. He obviously felt very strongly about doing good in his life as shown by his many actions, including but not limited to the Emancipation Proclamation of 1863. Abraham Lincoln was so opposed to being evil that he would rather be a nobody in his life, which is probably more than many people can say these days. We definitely need leaders today like Abe Lincoln.
