40,896. A first-rate second-rate man. (Insult & Abraham Lincoln) Wendell Phillips on Abraham Lincoln
38,225. President Lincoln would be in the presidential Chair untill [sic] He had destroyed the Nation. The North will never have power to Crush the South. No never. The Lord will give the South power to fight the North until they will destroy Each other. (Mormons & Lincoln) Heber C Kimball, Wilford Woodruff’s Journal VI:216
28,230. When President Abraham Lincoln tried to stop the loan sharks by issuing greenback dollars interest-free, a gunman with European connections named John Wilkes Booth shot down in cold blood. (Lincoln & Assassinations: Lincoln) Ring of Power
12,967. Claimed ... that the Jesuits we responsible for the killing of Lincoln. (Catholicism & Jesuit & Lincoln & Assassinations: Lincoln) A Lamp in the Dark – The Untold History of the Bible
13,033. The Jesuit/Illuminati assassination of Abraham Lincoln. (Catholicism & Jesuit & Illuminati & Lincoln & Assassinations: Lincoln) Satanic Vatican
13,034. In 1860 he [John Wilkes Booth] was initiated into the Knights of the Golden Circle. (Catholicism & Lincoln & Assassinations: Lincoln) ibid.
24,160. Who or what has been beamed aboard our vessel? An alien who has changed himself into this form? An illusion? I cannot conceive it possible that Abraham Lincoln could have been reincarnated ... (Star Trek & Lincoln) Star Trek: The Savage Curtain s3e22, Kirk’s log
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
28,523. Without slavery the rebellion would never have existed; without slavery it could not continue. (United States of America & US Civil War & Slavery & 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 & Lincoln) Abraham Lincoln, message to Congress December 1862
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
5,002. I am not in favour of Negro citizens. There is a physical difference between the white and black races which I believe will for ever forbid the two races living together on terms of social and political equality. (Equality & Racism & Black Culture & Lincoln & Slavery & United States of America) Abraham Lincoln
28,590. Those who deny freedom to others deserve it not for themselves. (Slavery & Freedom & United States of America & Lincoln) Abraham Lincoln
28,593. Whenever I hear anyone arguing for slavery, I feel a strong impulse to see it tried on him personally. (Slavery & United States of America & Lincoln) Abraham Lincoln
28,599. As I would not be a slave, so I would not be a master. This expresses my idea of democracy. (Slavery & United States of America & Lincoln) Abraham Lincoln
28,615. I am naturally anti-slavery. If slavery is not wrong, nothing is wrong. (Slavery & United States of America & Lincoln) Abraham Lincoln
28,629. You mean the whites are intellectually the superiors of the blacks, and, therefore have the right to enslave them? Take care again. By this rule, you are to be slave to the first man you meet, with an intellect superior to your own. But, say you, it is a question of interest; and, if you can make it your interest, you have the right to enslave another. Very well. And if he can make it his interest, he has the right to enslave you. (Slavery & United States of America & Lincoln) Abraham Lincoln
28,630. ... The spread of slavery, I can not but hate. I hate it because of the monstrous injustice of slavery itself. I hate it because it deprives our republican example of its just influence in the world – enables the enemies of free institutions, with plausibility, to taunt us as hypocrites – causes the real friends of freedom to doubt our sincerity, and especially because it forces so many really good men amongst ourselves into an open war with the very fundamental principles of civil liberty – criticising the Declaration of Independence, and insisting that there is no right principle of action but self-interest. (Slavery & United States of America & Lincoln) Abraham Lincoln
28,631. When the white man governs himself, that is self-government; but when he governs himself and also governs another man, that is more than self-government – that is despotism. If the negro is a man, why then my ancient faith teaches me that ‘all men are created equal’ and that there can be no moral right in connection with one man's making a slave of another. (Slavery & United States of America & Lincoln) Abraham Lincoln, speech Peoria Illinois
28,632. No man is good enough to govern another man without that other’s consent. I say this is the leading principle, the sheet-anchor of American republicanism ... Now the relation of master and slave is pro tanto a total violation of this principle. The master not only governs the slave without his consent, but he governs him by a set of rules altogether different from those which he prescribes for himself. Allow ALL the governed an equal voice in the government, and that, and that only, is self-government. (Slavery & United States of America & Lincoln & Government & Govern & Consent) ibid.
28,633. Slavery is founded in the selfishness of man’s nature – opposition to it, in his love of justice. These principles are an eternal antagonism; and when brought into collision so fiercely, as slavery extension brings them, shocks, and throes, and convulsions must ceaselessly follow. Repeal the Missouri Compromise – repeal all compromises – repeal the Declaration of Independence – repeal all past history, you still can not repeal human nature. It still will be the abundance of man’s heart, that slavery extension is wrong; and out of the abundance of his heart, his mouth will continue to speak. (Slavery & United States of America & Lincoln) ibid.
28,634. Little by little, but steadily as man’s march to the grave, we have been giving up the old for the new faith. Near eighty years ago we began by declaring that all men are created equal; but now from that beginning we have run down to the other declaration, that for some men to enslave others is a ‘sacred right of self-government’. These principles can not stand together. They are as opposite as God and mamon; and whoever holds to the one, must despise the other. (Slavery & United States of America & Lincoln) ibid.
28,635. I believe this government cannot endure, permanently half slave and half free. (Slavery & United States of America & Lincoln) Abraham Lincoln
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
28,730. The dogmas of the quiet past are inadequate to the stormy present ... We say we are for Union. The world will not forget that we say this. In giving freedom to the slave we assure freedom to the free. (Lincoln & United States of America & US Civil War & Slavery) Abraham Lincoln, address to Congress
28,807. We will teach them the folly of starting a war. (Lincoln & United States of America & US Civil War) Abraham Lincoln
28,808. Whence shall we expect the approach of danger? Shall some trans-Atlantic giant step the Earth and crush us at a blow? Never. All the armies of Europe and Asia could not by force take a drink from the Ohio river, or make a track on the Blue Ridge in the trial of a thousand years. If destruction be our lot, we must ourselves be its author and finisher. As a nation of free men we will live for ever or die by suicide. (Lincoln & United States of America & US Civil War) Abraham Lincoln 1837
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
28,810. The struggle of today is not altogether for today. It is for a vast future also. (Lincoln & US Civil War & United States of America & Future) Abraham Lincoln to Congress
