28,830.  Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore,
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!  Emma Lazarus, poem incribed

on Liberty's base

 

 

41,628.  Right after the civil war there was considerable talk about reviving Lincoln’s brief experiment with the constitutional money system.  Had not the European money-trust intervened, it would have no doubt become an established institution.  (Money & United States of America & Banksters & Federal Reserve)  W Cleon Skousen   

 

 

28,523.  Without slavery the rebellion would never have existed; without slavery it could not continue.  (United States & Civil War & Slavery & Abraham Linco;n)  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 & Civil War & Abraham 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 & Civil War & Abraham 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 & Abraham Lincoln & Slavery & United States)  Abraham Lincoln

28,590.  Those who deny freedom to others deserve it not for themselves.  (Slavery & Freedom & United States & Abraham 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 & Abraham 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 & Abraham Lincoln)  Abraham Lincoln

 

 

28,615.  I am naturally anti-slavery.  If slavery is not wrong, nothing is wrong.  (Slavery & United States & Abraham 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 & Abraham 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 & Abraham 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 & Abraham 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 & Abraham 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 & Abraham 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 & Abraham Lincoln)  ibid. 

 

 

28,635.  I believe this government cannot endure, permanently half slave and half free.  (Slavery & United States & Abraham 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.  (Abraham Lincoln & United States & Civil War)  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.  (Abraham Lincoln & United States & 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.  (Abraham Lincoln & United States & Civil War & Slavery)  Abraham Lincoln, address to Congress

 

 

28,807.  We will teach them the folly of starting a war.  (Abraham Lincoln & United States & 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.  (Abraham Lincoln & United States & 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.  (Abraham Lincoln & United States & Civil War)  Abraham Lincoln

 

 

28,810.  The struggle of today is not altogether for today.  It is for a vast future also.  (Abraham Lincoln & Civil War & United States & Future)  Abraham Lincoln to Congress
