Words of Encouragement
Abraham Lincoln 
In this sad world of ours, sorrow comes to all…
It comes with bitterest agony…
Perfect relief is not possible, except with time.
You cannot now realize that you will ever feel better…
And yet this is a mistake.
You are sure to be happy again.
To know this, which is certainly true,
will make you some less miserable now.
I have experienced enough to know what I say.
- Abraham Lincoln

Three of Lincoln’s four sons died: Edward, age 4; William, age 11; and Thomas, age 18.
