Five Quotes from Abraham Lincoln


Any people anywhere, being inclined and having the power, have the right to rise up, and shake off the existing government, and form a new one that suits them better. This is a most valuable - a most sacred right - a right, which we hope and believe, is to liberate the world.

America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.

Government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the Earth.

Labor is prior to, and independent of, capital. Capital is only the fruit of labor, and could never have existed if labor had not first existed. Labor is the superior of capital, and deserves much the higher consideration. 

My dream is of a place and a time where America will once again be seen as the last best hope of earth.
