Much has been written about Abraham Lincoln. Almost every account
of him makes note of his tremendous sense of humor. Lincoln loved
laughter. If he or anyone else could make him the brunt of any
joke, all the better. He loved the sound of others laughing.
Perhaps it was his simple ordinariness, which put people at ease.
Often in conversation he would swing his long leg over the arm of
the chair and speak in commonplace language. It was hard to be awed
in the presence of Lincoln; he was approachable, human, and simple.
He would use humor to disarm opposition, or gain good will. Humor
was a safety valve for him. Otherwise, he would have been crushed
by all he had to deal with daily.
