GH91 120417 How real is it?

By Admin on 08-04-2017

One time a group of people came to Abraham Lincoln to discuss something that had been causing some trouble. Their arguments were not based on facts but on suppositions. After listening for a while, Lincoln asked, “How many legs would a sheep have, if you called its tail a leg?” “Five” was the reply.  “No,” said Lincoln, “it wouldn’t; it would only have four. Calling a tail a leg doesn’t make it one.” Our fears, likewise, many a time are based on suppositions and unrealistic assumptions rather than on facts.
