That is not an Abraham Lincoln quote, even though it's attributed to Lincoln by a hundred internet sources. Doesn't sound one bit like Lincoln, and that trite parallel phrase switching is a mostly 21st Century habit that is really tiresome. We can all think of lots of examples -- "Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but the number of moments that take your breath away." That sentence construction is especially popular in meaningless management and leadership slogans like, "The conventional definition of management is getting work done through people, but real management is developing people through work." (Agha Abedi). Then there's the Mark Twain quote that is maybe the historical template for this habit, ""It's not the size of the dog in the fight, it's the size of the fight in the dog."

If anyone can confidently identify the document, speech, or letter of Lincoln's where he actually used that sentence, I'll be very surprised. It's not Lincoln.
