Abraham Lincoln Quotes


“With malice toward none, with charity for all,
with firmness in the right as God gives us to see the right,
let us strive on to finish the work we are in,
to bind up the nation’s wounds,
to care for him who shall have borne the battle
and for his widow and his orphan,
to do all which may achieve
and cherish a just and lasting peace
among ourselves and with all nations.”

~ Abraham Lincoln

“I am not bound to win but I am bound to be true.
I am not bound to succeed,
but I am bound to live 
by the light that I have.
I must stand with anybody that stands right,
and stand with him while he is right,
and part with him when he goes wrong.

~ Abraham Lincoln

“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.”

~ Abraham Lincoln

“I see in the near future
a crisis approaching that unnerves me
and causes me to tremble
for the safety of my country. . . .
Corporations have been enthroned,
an era of corruption in high places will follow,
and the money-power of the country
will endeavor to prolong its reign
by working upon the prejudices
of the people until the wealth
is aggregated in a few hands
and the Republic is destroyed.”

~ Abraham Lincoln

“I believe it is an established maxim in morals
that he who makes an assertion
without knowing whether it is true or false
is guilty of falsehood, and the accidental truth
of the assertion does not justify or excuse him.”

~ Abraham Lincoln
