Abraham Lincoln, the 16th president of the United States, was probably one of the great figures in American history. He not only ended slavery in the nation but also led the country as the American Commander-in-Chief during the Civil War.

Following are top 20 Abraham Lincoln quotes that can inspire you.

“I am not bound to win, but I am bound to be true. I am not bound to succeed, but I am bound to live by the light that I have. I must stand with anybody that stands right, and stand with him while he is right, and part with him when he goes wrong.”

“Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man’s character, give him power.”

“It is true that you may fool all of the people some of the time; you can even fool some of the people all the time; but you can’t fool all of the people all the time.”

“Do I not destroy my enemies when I make them my friends?”

“If you are resolutely determined to make a lawyer of yourself, the thing is more than half done already.”

“Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt.”

“Character is like a tree and reputation like a shadow. The shadow is what we think of it; the tree is the real thing.”

“The things I want to know are in books; my best friend is the man who’ll get me a book I ain’t read.”

“I’m a success today because I had a friend who believed in me and I didn’t have the heart to let him down.”

“Let not him who is houseless pull down the house of another; but let him labor diligently and build one for himself, thus by example assuring that his own shall be safe from violence when built.”

“Every advocate of slavery naturally desires to see blasted, and crushed, the liberty promised the black man by the new constitution.”

“I am a firm believer in the people. If given the truth, they can be depended upon to meet any national crises. The great point is to bring them the real facts.”

“I have always found that mercy bears richer fruits than strict justice.”

“What is conservatism? Is it not adherence to the old and tried, against the new and untried?”

“I remember my mother’s prayers and they have always followed me. They have clung to me all my life.”

“The best thing about the future is that it comes only one day at a time.”

“I am a slow walker, but I never walk backwards.”

“You have to do your own growing no matter how tall your grandfather was.”

“Whenever I hear anyone arguing for slavery, I feel a strong impulse to see it tried on him personally.”

“My father taught me to work, but not to love it. I never did like to work, and I don’t deny it. I’d rather read, tell stories, crack jokes, talk, laugh — anything but work.”

Steve Jobs is not only one of the fathers of the personal computing era but also heralded as one of the best businessmen and creative minds of the past century. The late Apple co-founder, who was the 110th richest person in the world with an estimated net worth of $ 8.3 billion in 2011, revolutionized an industry and created technology others only dreamed of.

Following are 15 best Steve Jobs quotes that can inspire you.

“Being the richest man in the cemetery doesn’t matter to me. … Going to bed at night saying we’ve done something wonderful — that’s what matters to me.”

“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”

“I think if you do something and it turns out pretty good, then you should go do something else wonderful, not dwell on it for too long. Just figure out what’s next.”

“You have to trust in something — your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down.”  

“Creativity is just connecting things. When you ask creative people how they did something, they feel a little guilty because they didn’t really do it, they just saw something. It seemed obvious to them after a while.”

“I think death is the most wonderful invention of life. It purges the system of these old models that are obsolete.”

“Sometimes life hits you in the head with a brick. Don’t lose faith.”

“Quality is more important than quantity. One home run is much better than two doubles.”

“My model for business is the Beatles. They were four guys who kept each other’s kind of negative tendencies in check. They balanced each other, and the total was greater than the sum of the parts. That’s how I see business: Great things in business are never done by one person. They’re done by a team of people.”

“Do you want to spend the rest of your life selling sugared water or do you want a chance to change the world?”

“Being the richest man in the cemetery doesn’t matter to me. Going to bed at night saying we’ve done something wonderful… that’s what matters to me.”

“Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your owner inner voice.

“Sometimes when you innovate, you make mistakes. It is best to admit them quickly, and get on with improving your other innovations.”

“That’s been one of my mantras – focus and simplicity. Simple can be harder than complex: You have to work hard to get your thinking clean to make it simple. But it’s worth it in the end because once you get there, you can move mountains.”

“I think we’re having fun. I think our customers really like our products. And we’re always trying to do better.”
