Lincoln's Famous Quotes

"I frequently make mistakes myself, in the many things I am compelled to do hastily." - from the May 20, 1863 Letter to General Rosecrans

"In times like the present, men should utter nothing for which they would not willingly be responsible through time and eternity." - from the December 1, 1862 Annual Message to Congress

"May our children and our children's children to a thousand generations, continue to enjoy the benefits conferred upon us by a united country, and have cause yet to rejoice under those glorious institutions bequeathed us by Washington and his compeers." - from the October 4, 1862 Speech at Frederick, Maryland

"...I do not mean to say that this government is charged with the duty of redressing or preventing all the wrongs in the world; but I do think that it is charged with the duty of preventing and redressing all wrongs which are wrongs to itself." - from the September 17,1859 Speech at Cincinnati, Ohio.

"Our reliance is in the love of liberty which God has planted in our bosoms. Our defense is in the preservation of the spirit which prizes liberty as the heritage of all men, in all lands, everywhere." - from the September 11, 1858 Speech at Edwardsville, Illinois

"Let your military measures be strong enough to repel the invader and keep the peace, and not so strong as to unnecessarily harass and persecute the people." - from the May 27, 1863 Letter to John M. Schofield

"War at best, is terrible, and this war of ours, in its magnitude and in its duration, is one of the most terrible." - from the June 16, 1864 Speech at Philadelphia

"I don't believe in a law to prevent a man from getting rich; it would do more harm than good. So while we do not propose any war upon capital, we do wish to allow the humblest man an equal chance to get rich with everbody else." - from the March 6, 1860 Speech at New Haven, Connecticut

"In this great struggle, this form of Government and every form of human right is endangered if our enemies succeed. There is more involved in this contest than is realized by every one." - from the August 18, 1864 Speech to the 164th Ohio Regiment

"I do not think I could myself, be brought to support a man for office, whom I knew to be an open enemy of, and scoffer at, religion." - from the July 31, 1846 Handbill Replying to Charges of Infidelity

"I leave you, hoping that the lamp of liberty will burn in your bosoms until there shall no longer be a doubt that all men are created free and equal." - from the July 10, 1858 Speech at Chicago, Illinois
