Today marks the birthday of a great Amercian president, Abraham Lincoln. President Lincoln is know for his strong character, wisdom and leadership, but it seems as though he also had a sense of humor. Funny how this Abe Lincoln quote starts out sounding Biblical, then delivers the punch line.

“It is better to be silent and be thought a fool, than to speak and remove all doubt.” – Abraham Lincoln

Here is a verse from the Bible that sounds similar, but clearly different:

“Even fools are thought wise if they keep silent, and discerning if they hold their tongues.” – Proverbs 17:28 NIV
