24,162. I was commander-in-chief during the four bloodiest years of my country’s history. I gave orders that sent 100,000 men to their death at the hands of their brothers. There is no honourable way to kill. No gentle way to destroy. There is nothing good in war except its ending. (Star Trek & Lincoln) ibid. Lincoln to Kirk & Spock
28,503. They took it for more than it was, or anyhow for more than it said; the container was greater than the thing contained, and Lincoln became at once what he would remain for them ‘the man who freed the slaves’. He would go down to posterity, not primarily as the Preserver of the Republic – which he was – but as the Great Emancipator, which he was not. (United States of America & US Civil War & Lincoln) Shelby Foote, The Civil War vol I
4,483. 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.

… 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. (Lincoln & United States of America & US Civil War) Abraham Lincoln, second inaugural speech 4th Mary 1865
28,811. Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth, on this continent, a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.
Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived, and so dedicated, can long endure. We are met on a great battle-field of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of that field, as a final resting-place for those who here gave their lives, that that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this.
But, in a larger sense, we can not dedicate, we can not consecrate – we can not hallow – this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us – that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they here gave the last full measure of devotion – that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain – that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom, and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth. (United States of America & Lincoln & US Civil War) Abraham Lincoln, Gettysburg Address (Bancroft copy)

(Equality & Racism & Black People & Lincoln & Slavery & United States of America) Abraham Lincoln
28,635. I believe this government cannot endure, permanently half slave and half free. (Slavery & United States of America & Lincoln) Abraham Lincoln, House Divided speech 1858
28,809. In your hands, my dissatisfied countrymen, and not in mine is the momentous issue of civil war. The government will not assail you. You can have no conflict without being yourselves the aggressors. We are not enemies but friends. We must not be enemies. (Lincoln & United States of America & US Civil War) Abraham Lincoln
28,812. Let us have faith that right makes might, and in that faith, let us, to the end, dare to do our duty as we understand it. (United States of America & Lincoln & US Civil War & Faith & Duty) Abraham Lincoln, speech 27th February 1860
28,728. My paramount object in this struggle is to save the Union, and is not either to save or to destroy slavery. If I could save the Union without freeing any slave I would do it. (Lincoln & United States of America & US Civil War & & Slavery) Abraham Lincoln
28,729. On 1st day of January in the year of our Lord 1863 all persons held as slaves within any state or designated part of the state the people whereof shall then be in rebellion against the United States shall be then, henceforth and forever free. (Lincoln & United States of America & US Civil War & Slavery) Abraham Lincoln, The Emancipation Proclamation
5,405. Our defense is in the preservation of the spirit which prizes liberty as a heritage of all men, in all lands, everywhere. Destroy this spirit and you have planted the seeds of despotism around your own doors. (Civil Liberties & Liberty & Despotism & Lincoln) Abraham Lincoln
28,524. The dogmas of the quiet past are inadequate to the stormy present. The occasion is piled high with difficulty, and we must rise – with the occasion. As our case is new, so we must think anew, and act anew. We must disenthrall ourselves, and then we shall save our country. Fellow-citizens, we cannot escape history. We of this Congress and this administration, will be remembered in spite of ourselves. No personal significance, or insignificance, can spare one or another of us. The fiery trial through which we pass, will light us down, in honor or dishonor, to the latest generation. We say we are for the Union. The world will not forget that we say this. We know how to save the Union. The world knows we do know how to save it. We – even we here – hold the power, and bear the responsibility. In giving freedom to the slave, we assure freedom to the free – honorable alike in what we give, and what we preserve. We shall nobly save, or meanly lose, the last best hope of earth. (United States of America & US Civil War & Slavery & Lincoln) Abraham Lincoln, message to Congress December 1862
38,586. The government should create, issue and circulate all the currency and credit needed to satisfy the spending power of the government and the buying power of consumers.
The privilege of creating and issuing money is not only the supreme prerogative of government, but it is the government’s greatest creative opportunity.
By the adoption of these principles, the long-felt want for a uniform medium will be satisfied. The taxpayers will be saved immense sums of interest, discounts and exchanges.
The financing of all public enterprises, the maintenance of stable government and ordered progress, and the conduct of the Treasury will become matter of practical administrators.
The people can and will be furnished with a currency as safe as their own government. Money will cease to be the master and become the servant of humanity.
Democracy will rise, superior to the money power. (Government & Currency & Money & Banks & Federal Reserve & Lincoln) Abraham Lincoln
28,541. The mystic chords of memory, stretching from every battle-field, and patriot grave, to every living heart and hearth-stone, all over this broad land, will yet swell the chorus of the Union, when again touched, as surely they will be, by the better angels of our nature. (United States of America & US Civil War & Lincoln) Abraham Lincoln
