Abraham-Lincoln-by-Matthew-Brady

      Abraham Lincoln (February 12, 1809 – April 15, 1865)

Lincoln was largely self-taught, gaining much of his education from 
reading such books as the King James Bible, John Bunyan’s Pilgrim’s
Progress, Daniel Defoe’s Robinson Crusoe, Aesop’s Fables, and the 
Autobiography of Benjamin Franklin

Lincoln once said, characteristically, “I am sorry for the man who
can’t feel the whip when it is laid on the other man’s back.”
