Friends, no one not in my situation can appreciate my feeling of sadness at this parting. To this place, and the kindness of these people, I owe everything. Here I have lived a quarter of a century and have passed from a young to an old man. Here my children were born, and one lies buried. I leave you now, not knowing when, or whether ever, I may return, with a task before me greater than that which devolved upon General Washington. Without the assistance of that Devine Being who ever attended him, I cannot succeed. With that assistance, I cannot fail. Trusting in him who can go with me, and remain with you, and be everywhere for good, let us confidently hope that all will yet be well. To his care commending you, as I hope you will commend me in your prayers. I bid you an affectionate farewell. ~ Abraham Lincoln

If the end brings me out wrong, ten angels swearing I was right would make no difference. ~ Abraham Lincoln

 

Leave nothing for tomorrow which can be done today. ~ Abraham Lincoln

The probability that we may fall in the struggle ought not to deter us from the support of a cause we believe to be just; it shall not deter me. ~ Abraham Lincoln

 

Whatever you are, be a good one. ~ Abraham Lincoln

 

You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift. You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong. You cannot help the poor man by destroying the rich. You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred. You cannot build character and courage by taking away man's initiative and independence. You cannot help small men by tearing down big men. You cannot lift the wage earner by pulling down the wage payer. You cannot keep out of trouble by spending more than your income. You cannot establish security on borrowed money. You cannot help men permanently by doing for them what they will not do for themselves. ~ Abraham Lincoln
