Brethren,

I will continue sharing with you some quotes from our “Fathers”:

 

Truth will ultimately prevail where there is pain to bring it to light.

George Washington

 

If the freedom of speech is taken away then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter.

George Washington

America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms,
 it will be because we destroyed ourselves.

Abraham Lincoln

 

My dream is of a place and a time where America will once again be seen as the last best hope of earth.
Abraham Lincoln

 

If the great American people will only keep their temper, on both sides of the line, the troubles will come to an end, and the
question which now distracts the country will be settled, just as surely as all other difficulties of like character
which have originated in this government have been adjusted.

Abraham Lincoln

 

With Malice toward none, with charity for all, with firmness in the right, as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to
finish the work we are in, to bind up the nation's wounds.

Abraham Lincoln

 

I am a firm believer in the people. If given the truth, they can be depended upon to meet any national crisis.
The great point is to bring them the real facts.

Abraham Lincoln

In this sad world of ours, sorrow comes to all; and to the young, it comes with bitterest agony because it takes them unawares.
I have had experience enough to know what I say.

Abraham Lincoln

We can succeed only by concert. It is not, 'Can any of us imagine better,' but, 'Can we all do better?'

Abraham Lincoln

 

I know that the Lord is always on the side of the right; but it is my constant anxiety and prayer that I and this nation
may be on the Lord's side.

Abraham Lincoln

 

Let’s have faith that right makes might; and in that faith let us, to the end, dare to do our duty as we understand it.

Abraham Lincoln

 

I hold that while man exists, it is his duty to improve not only his own condition, but to assist in ameliorating mankind.

Abraham Lincoln

 

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

Abraham Lincoln

 

Important principles may, and must, be inflexible.

Abraham Lincoln

 

A house divided against itself cannot stand.

Abraham Lincoln
