You can tell the greatness of a man by what makes him angry

Abraham Lincoln
There is a natural disgust in the minds of nearly all white people to the idea of indiscriminate amalgamation of the white and black races ... A separation of the races is the only perfect preventive of amalgamation, but as an immediate separation is impossible, the next best thing is to keep them apart where they are not already together. If white and black people never get together in Kansas, they will never mix blood in Kansas ...
Abraham Lincoln

I therefore consider that in view of the Constitution and the laws, the Union is unbroken; and to the extent of my ability I shall take care, as the Constitution itself expressly enjoins upon me, that the laws of the Union be faithfully executed in all the States.

Abraham Lincoln
Study the Constitution. Let it be preached from the pulpit, proclaimed in legislatures, and enforced in courts of justice.
Abraham Lincoln

With malice towards none; with charity for all....

Abraham Lincoln
Well, I suppose you know that men will stand a good deal when they are flattered.

What is conservatism? Is it not the adherence to the old and tried against the new and untried?

Abraham Lincoln
We must work earnestly in the best light He gives us.
Abraham Lincoln

I go for all sharing the privileges of the government who assist in bearing its burdens. Consequently I go for admitting all whites to the right of suffrage who pay taxes or bear arms, by no means excluding females.

Abraham Lincoln
We must remember that the people of all the States are entitled to all the privileges and immunities of the citizen of the several States. We should bear this in mind, and act in such a way as to say nothing insulting or irritating. I would inculcate this idea, so that we may not, like Pharisees, set ourselves up to be better than other people.
