We shall nobly save, or meanly lose, our last best hope of Earth. Abraham Lincoln

I then found out what "demonstrate" means, and went back to my law studies. Abraham Lincoln

In this troublesome world, we are never quite satisfied.

No policy that does not rest upon some philosophical public opinion can be permanently maintained. Abraham Lincoln
Download Wallpaper:

The will of God prevails. In great contests each party claims to act in accordance with the will of God. Both may be, and one must be, wrong. God cannot be for and against the same thing at the same time. In the present civil war it is quite possible that God's purpose is something different from the purpose of either party - and yet the human instrumentalities, working just as they do, are of the best adaptation to effect His purpose. Abraham Lincoln

It is better then, to save the work while it is begun. You have done the labor; maintain it - keep it. If men choose to serve you, go with them; but as you have made up your organization upon principle, stand by it; for as surely as God reigns over you, and has inspired your mind, and given you a sense of propriety, and continues to give you hope, so surely will you still cling to these ideas, and you will at last come back after your wanderings, merely to do your work over again. Abraham Lincoln

Abraham Lincoln

I do not wish to be misunderstood upon this subject of slavery in this country. I suppose it may long exist, and perhaps the best way for it to come to an end peaceably is for it to exist for a length of time.

There we should in every way resist it as a wrong, treating it as a wrong, with the fixed idea that it must and will come to an end. Abraham Lincoln
