Quote of the Day - Abraham Lincoln

Today I came across this quote from Abraham Lincoln (my favorite U.S. President) for the first time and immediately was struck with its wisdom. I have never really much cared for Lord Acton's much more famous statement about power and its effects upon Mankind as it is not always accurate whereas I feel this quote is nearly always accurate.
"Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man's character, give him power."
