What Abraham Lincoln Teaches Us About “Right” and “Wrong”

(prepare to have your mind blown)

“You either die a hero or live long enough to see yourself become the villain.” — Harvey, The Dark Knight

“I have no purpose directly or indirectly to interfere with the institution of slavery in the states where it exists. I believe I have no lawful right to do so, and I have no inclination to do so.” — Abraham Lincoln

“If I could save the Union without freeing any slave I would do it, and if I could save it by freeing all the slaves I would do it; and if I could save it by freeing some and leaving others alone I would also do that.” — Abraham Lincoln

“There is a physical difference between the white and black races that will forever forbid the two races from living together on terms of social and political equality.” — 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.” — Abraham Lincoln
