Summer Quotations - 1st August

I haven't put up any quotations for the last few days, because I didn't find any, and the idea is to trip across them, rather than search them out.

This one was in a music catalogue/magazine  from Stainer and Bell Ltd, called, unsurprisingly, "The Bell"  that sporadically comes through the letterbox;

Here are a few more Abraham Lincoln quotations, taken from the internet....

Most folks are about as happy as they make up their minds to be.

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

Whatever you are, be a good one.

A house divided against itself cannot stand.

And in the end, it's not the years in your life that count, but the life in your years.

You can fool some of the people all of the time, and all of the people some of the time, but you can not fool all of the people all of the time.

Those who deny freedom to others deserve it not for themselves.

Always bear in mind that your own resolution to succeed is more important than any other.

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

I am a slow walker, but I never walk back.

So, which ones are genuine? Or, can you trust the internet, either for quotes, or for research into quotes... (By the way, I have no idea why one of the quotes has printed itself in a different colour - it is NOT a clue, and I can't be bothered to fix it!) As far as I can see, two have a reasonable provenance.
