Remembering Lincoln

I do not think I could myself, be brought to support a man for office, whom I knew to be an open enemy of, and scoffer at, religion.

The will of God prevails. In great contests each party claims to act in accordance with the will of God. Both may be, and one must be, wrong.

Nevertheless, amid the greatest difficulties of my Administration, when I could not see any other resort, I would place my whole reliance on God, knowing that all would go well, and that He would decide for the right.

In times like the present, men should utter nothing for which they would not willingly be responsible through time and eternity.

May the Almighty grant that the cause of truth, justice, and humanity, shall in no wise suffer at my hands.

  1. IMHO, Lincoln overreached when he said "He would decide for the right" in the outcome of the Civil War. History proves that the Right frequently does not prevail in life.

    In South Carolina, where I have lived for the last year, many residents still believe that He did not decide for the right.
