Abraham Lincoln, the 16th president of the United States, was probably one of the great figures in American history. He not only ended slavery in the nation but also led the country as the American Commander-in-Chief during the Civil War.

Following are top 20 Abraham Lincoln quotes that can inspire you.

“I am not bound to win, but I am bound to be true. I am not bound to succeed, but I am bound to live by the light that I have. I must stand with anybody that stands right, and stand with him while he is right, and part with him when he goes wrong.”

“Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man’s character, give him power.”

“It is true that you may fool all of the people some of the time; you can even fool some of the people all the time; but you can’t fool all of the people all the time.”

“Do I not destroy my enemies when I make them my friends?”

“If you are resolutely determined to make a lawyer of yourself, the thing is more than half done already.”

“Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt.”

“Character is like a tree and reputation like a shadow. The shadow is what we think of it; the tree is the real thing.”

“The things I want to know are in books; my best friend is the man who’ll get me a book I ain’t read.”

“I’m a success today because I had a friend who believed in me and I didn’t have the heart to let him down.”

“Let not him who is houseless pull down the house of another; but let him labor diligently and build one for himself, thus by example assuring that his own shall be safe from violence when built.”

“Every advocate of slavery naturally desires to see blasted, and crushed, the liberty promised the black man by the new constitution.”

“I am a firm believer in the people. If given the truth, they can be depended upon to meet any national crises. The great point is to bring them the real facts.”

“I have always found that mercy bears richer fruits than strict justice.”

“What is conservatism? Is it not adherence to the old and tried, against the new and untried?”

“I remember my mother’s prayers and they have always followed me. They have clung to me all my life.”

“The best thing about the future is that it comes only one day at a time.”

“I am a slow walker, but I never walk backwards.”

“You have to do your own growing no matter how tall your grandfather was.”

“Whenever I hear anyone arguing for slavery, I feel a strong impulse to see it tried on him personally.”

“My father taught me to work, but not to love it. I never did like to work, and I don’t deny it. I’d rather read, tell stories, crack jokes, talk, laugh — anything but work.”

Before undertaking a bathroom remodel, it is necessary to get a bathroom remodel quote. This will go a long way in helping you make a budget for your bathroom remodel project and will also aid you in deciding what part of the remodeling to stick with and which to ditch.

A bathroom remodel project can be a complex one particularly if you are redesigning the whole bathroom or doing some more complicated work that involves plumbing or electrical work. In such a case, it is most expedient for you to work with a bathroom remodel company.

Before you decide on a particular bathroom remodel company, you should scout around for reputable companies that have a history of delivering high quality professionally done work on time. When you have narrowed down a list of bathroom remodel companies, request a bathroom remodel quote from each. This should help you in your decision on what company to work with.
Getting bathroom remodel quotes from multiple bathroom remodeling firms is a straightforward affair and sometimes as simple as going to their websites on the internet and filling in your information. The challenge arises when you have not yet decided what form your bathroom remodeling project should take.

If you plan to just make surface changes or light alterations, it would reflect as much in any quote you will get from a remodeling firm. That would also apply if you choose to make more complex changes such as resizing or a complete overhaul of the amenities in the bathroom.

Your bathroom remodel quote should feature your plans and design for the bathroom including light fixtures, tiling jobs and any other related change. Bear in mind that even though most bathroom remodeling firms are willing to consult with you in order to come up with a solution for your bathroom that would be satisfactory to you, you need to have  clear idea of what you want in your bathroom.

To aid you in this, browse home improvement sites on the internet as some come equipped with pictures to help guide you. Also go through current home improvement magazines to get ideas about trends and styles. Sometimes, something as simple as an added accent to your tiling job can change the look of your bathroom.

You also need to determine what you want to change completely and on what you just want a little enhancement work done. For instance you might decide to carry out a reglaze of your bath tub instead of replacing it with a brand new one.

Once you have a clear idea of the design you want in your bathroom and what changes you are willing to make to achieve that design, go ahead and request a bathroom remodel quote from the firms you have narrowed down. Be sure to compare prices and quality of material to be used before you make up your mind. Regardless of how much more affordable a particular firm is, research their reputation before you give them your job.

Afghanistan has been a land of challenges. Whether it’s political turmoil, financial anxiety, land mine nightmares, constant coups or recurring wars, Afghanistan has bore the brunt of its ugly fate. To achieve constant progress however, the country has tried to overcome various problems and has successfully emerged up in many situations. Take its Education sector for instance. Plight of education in Afghanistan had seldom been fine, until King Zahir Shah came and took serious actions.

King Zahir Shah (early to mid 20th Century) built primary schools for students under the age of 12, along with strengthening the secondary school system and increasing the number of national universities in Kabul. This move was a first step towards laying a stronger foundation for education. Though a large part of population still remained illiterate, it was a bold move nevertheless.

Then in the mid 1980s the country had around 800 primary schools, 300 general secondary schools and about 6500 students in Kabul University. Such low figures are due to the widespread destruction that took place, which also eliminated up to 80 percent of the schools and colleges. Resultant, a large portion of Afghanistan generation grew up without any formal schooling.

The year 1996 once again marked a setback for Afghanistan education sector. The then Taliban regime most ferociously banned the education for females in Afghanistan and evolved mosque schools (madrassa) for primary and secondary education.

The 21st century has marked a shining phase in the Afghanistan Education. From a “no-education-for-girls”, the scenario shifted to “separate-education-for-girls”. In 2003, the girls and women shed off their camouflage and enrolled themselves in schools and colleges. Though they shared separate facilities, but they were given the right to study nonetheless. The transition is subtle, but sure.

Few of the named Universities of Afghanistan that have carved a niche in their education sector are as follows:-

• Kabul University
• American University of Afghanistan
• National Military Academy of Afghanistan
• Kabul Institute of Medicine
• Polytechnic University of Kabul
• University of Pedagogy

These estimable universities constitute a major chunk of illustrious scholars, and are gaining popularity with each passing day. Kabul University in itself presently holds 10,000 students, out of which 2000 are females. An educated mind is also an enlightened one. Hope the improvement in the Afghanistan education sector also paves the way for stronger community base.
