An amazing day

Can you think of another day that has borne two such iconic figures? On February 12, 1809, Abraham Lincoln and Charles Darwin were born.

Charles Darwin, wrote, "I think." And then he proceeded to draw the first diagram of an evolutionary family tree.

And this is what Abe Lincoln said. He said, "As I would not be a slave, so I would not be a master. This expresses my idea of democracy, and whatever differs from this to the extent of the difference there is no democracy." And then he gave us the Emancipation Proclamation.
