Charles Lamb

 

 

At the East India House the head of the office once reproved Charles Lamb for the excessive irregularity of his attendance

Really , Mr Lamb, you come very late!

Y..yes, replied Lamb with his habitual stammer, b..but con…sider how ear…..early I go!

Slow Horse

 

On one occasion when Lincoln was going to attend a political convention, one of his rivals, a liveryan, provided him a slow horse, hoping that he wouldn’t reach his destination in time. Lincoln got there, however, and when he returned with the horse, he said, “You keep this horse for funerals, don’t you?”

 

Oh, no! Replied the liveryman.

 

Well, I am glad of that, for if you did you would never get a corpse to the grave in time for resurrection.

A gentleman, having an appointment with another who was habitually unpunctual, to his great surprise found him waiting. He thus addressed him, “Why I see you are here first at last. You were always behind before, but I am glad to see you have become early of late”.

Gettysburg Address

 

On his way to Gettysburg, where he delivered his immortal address, Lincoln was urged by General Fry hurry in order not to hold up the train. To this Lincoln replied, I feel about this as the convict in one of our Illinois towns felt when he was going to the gallows. As he passed along the road in custody of the sheriff, the people eager to see the execution, kept crowding and pushing past him. At last he called out “Boys you need not be in such a hurry to get ahead. There won’t be any fun till I get there”.
