Sir, my concern is not whether God is on our side; my greatest concern is to be on God's side, for God is always right.

I do not boast that God is on my side, I humbly pray that I am on God's side.

Abraham Lincoln
I am for liberty of conscience in its noblest, broadest, and highest sense. But I cannot give liberty of conscience to the pope and his followers, the papists, so long as they tell me, through all their councils, theologians, and canon laws that their conscience orders them to burn my wife, strangle my children, and cut my throat when they find their opportunity.
Abraham Lincoln

Our eldest boy, Bob, has been away from us nearly a year at school, and will enter Harvard University this month. He promises verywell, considering we never controlled him much.

Abraham Lincoln
Money will cease to be master and become the servant of humanity. Democracy will rise superior to the money power.
Abraham Lincoln

The will of God prevails.

Abraham Lincoln
Shall we stop this bleeding?
Abraham Lincoln

Let us strive on to finish the work we are in.

Abraham Lincoln
Nowhere in the world is presented a government of so much liberty and equality. To the humblest and poorest amongst us are held out the highest privileges and positions. The present moment finds me at the White House, yet there is as good a chance for your children as there was for my father's.
Abraham Lincoln

I sincerely wish war was a pleasanter and easier business than it is, but it does not admit of holidays.

Abraham Lincoln
You may think it was a very little thing, and in these days it seems to me like a trifle, but it was a most important incident in my life. I could scarcely credit that I, the poor boy, had earned a dollar in less than a day; that by honest work, I had earned a dollar. I was a more hopeful and thoughtful boy from that time.
