a nation of freemen (Lincoln)

"At what point then is the approach of danger to be expected? I answer, if it ever reach us, it must spring up amongst us. It cannot come from abroad. If destruction be our lot, we must ourselves be its author and finisher. As a nation of freemen, we must live through all time, or die by suicide." --January 27, 1838

seeing the face of God (Abraham Lincoln)

I never behold them [the heavens filled with stars] that I do not feel I am looking in the face of God. I can see how it might be possible for a man to look down upon the earth and be an atheist, but I cannot conceive of how he could look up into the heavens and say there is no God. Abraham Lincoln

When you reach the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on. Abraham Lincoln

When I do good, I feel good (Abraham Lincoln)

When I do good, I feel good.  When I do bad, I feel bad.  That's my religion. Abraham Lincoln.
