The Leader as Timepiece

Lincoln reportedly said:
"The best thing about the future is that it comes one day at a time."
But why is this the BEST thing about the future?

Couldn't one fortnight at a time be better for facing the future? Or a month? Or a year? Or a decade?

Or conversely an hour? Or a minute. Or a moment? Or a second?

How long is a moment, anyway?

Homework: Would Franklin have agreed with Lincoln?

Maybe Lincoln was an Existentialist?

I thought he was a Deist with Calvinist proclivities.
