Man, that is one powerful quote. Abraham Lincoln said it and it happens to be the title of Lisa Congdon’s beautiful book of hand-lettered quotes. If you are looking for something to read before you go to bed, or in the morning when you awake, this is a great one. The images are really clever and the text is well chosen. Even the embossing on the cover is lovely to touch! Here are a few of the quotes…
