Abraham Lincoln

16th US President
Upon this subject, the habits of our whole species fall into three great classes--useful labour, useless labour and idleness. Of these the first only is meritorious; and to it all the products of labour rightfully belong; but the two latter, while they exist, are heavy pensioners upon the first, robbing it of a large portion of it's just rights. The only remedy for this is to, as far as possible, drive useless labour and idleness out of existence.More Abraham Lincoln quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Never stir up litigation, a worse man can scarcely be found than one who does this, who can be more nearly a fiend than he who habitually overhauls the register of deeds in search of defects in titles, whereon to stir up strife, and put money in his pocket?More Abraham Lincoln quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The shadow is what we think of it; the tree is the real thing.More Abraham Lincoln quotes [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The one victory we can ever call complete will be that one which proclaims that there is not one slave or one drunkard on the face of God's green earth.More Abraham Lincoln quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Labor is prior to, and independent of, capital. Capital is only the fruit of labor, and could never have existed if labor had not first existed. Labor is the superior of capital, and deserves much the higher consideration. Capital has its rights, which are as worthy of protection as any other rights.More Abraham Lincoln quotes [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
