I trained in Shakespeare, and that’s all comedy, even when it’s tragedy.
– Olivia Thirlby
Abraham Lincoln comes from nothing, has no education, no money, lives in the middle of nowhere on the frontier. And despite the fact that he suffers one tragedy and one setback after another, through sheer force of will, he becomes something extraordinary: not only the president but the person who almost single-handedly united the country.
– Seth Grahame-Smith
