Quotes and Images From The Writings of Abraham Lin

Produced by David Widger

QUOTES AND IMAGES FROM ABRAHAM LINCOLN.

ABRAHAM LINCOLN

Included here are quotations and references to subjects in the eight volumes of "The Writings of Abraham Lincoln". It begins with his first political address in 1832 and ends with a hastily scrawled note on the day of his assassination. I hoped that the design of the html page with quotations scrolling down along the side of various steel engravings and photographs of this great man might give the words a greater impact. D. W.

100,000 slaves are now in the United States military service

Abolishing slavery in Washington, DC

Abraham or "Abram"

Act in such a manner as to create no bad feeling

Affected contempt of refinement

All know where he went in at; can't tell where he will come out at

All agreed on this except South Carolina and Georgia

And the war came

As I would not be a slave, so I would not be a master

Ask of you military success, and I will risk the dictatorship

Bad promises are better broken than kept

Better for their own good than if they had been successful

Boiling the shadow of a pigeon that had starved to death

Bread that his own hands have earned

Came forward and made a virtue of necessity

Colonization

Common right of humanity

Compensated Emancipation

Conspiracy to perpetuate and nationalize slavery

Constitution alludes to slavery three times

Could not afford to make money

Counterfeit logic

Crime to tell him that he is free!

Danger of third-parties

Declaring the African slave trade piracy

Direct while appearing to obey

Dirge of one who has no title to himself

Distinction between a purpose and an expectation

Don't think it will do him a bit of good either

Dred Scott

Endeavoring to blow up a storm that he may ride upon

Estimated as mere brutes--as rightful property

Events control me; I cannot control events

Explanations explanatory of explanations explained
