Bigfoot caught on tape

January 1864, Letter to James S. Wadsworth While we must, by all available means, prevent the overthrow of the government, we should avoid planting and cultivating too many thorns in the bosom of society. March 18, 1864 Letter to Edwin M. Stanton In this great struggle, this form of Government and every form of human right is endangered if our enemies succeed. There is more involved in this contest than is realized by every one. It is not merely for to-day, but for all time to come that we should perpetuate for our childrens children this great and free government, which we have enjoyed all our lives. – August 22, 1864 Speech to the One Hundred Sixty-sixth Ohio Regiment Nowhere in the world is presented a government of so much liberty and equality. To the humblest and poorest amongst us are held out the highest privileges and positions. The present moment finds me at the White House, yet there is as good a chance for your children as there was for my fathers. August 31, 1864 Speech to 148th Ohio Regiment Thoughtful men must feel that the fate of civilization upon this continent is involved in the issue of our contest. December 27, 1864 Letter to John Maclean When it comes to this I should prefer emigrating to some country where they make no pretence of loving liberty to Russia, for instance, where despotism can be taken pure, and without the base alloy of hypocracy. That is the issue that will continue in this country when these poor tongues of Judge Douglas and myself shall be silent. It is the eternal struggle between these two principles right and wrong throughout the world. They are the two principles that have stood face to face from the beginning of time, and will ever continue to struggle. The one is the common right of humanity and the other the divine right of kings. October 15, 1858 Debate at Alton, Illinois If you are resolutely determined to make a lawyer of yourself, the thing is more than half done already. Always bear in mind that your own resolution to succeed, is more important than any other one thing. I know not how to aid you, save in the assurance of one of mature age, and much severe experience, that you can not fail, if you resolutely determine, that you will not. And having thus chosen our course, without guile, and with pure purpose, let us renew our trust in God, and go forward without fear, and with manly hearts. July 4, 1861 Message to Congress Adhere to your purpose and you will soon feel as well as you ever did. On the contrary, if you falter, and give up, you will lose the power of keeping any resolution, and will regret it all your life. June 28, 1862 Letter to Quintin Campbell I expect to maintain this bigfoot caught on tape until successful, or till I die, or am conquered, or my term expires, or Congress or the country forsakes June 28, 1862 Letter to William H. Seward Upon the subject of education, not presuming to dictate any plan or system respecting it, I can bigfoot caught on tape say that I view it as the most important subject which we as a people can be engaged in. Clays lack of a more perfect early education, however it may be regretted generally, teaches at least one profitable lesson; it teaches that in this country, one can scarcely be so poor, but that, if he will, he can acquire sufficient education to get through the world respectably. A capacity, and taste, for reading, gives access to whatever has already been discovered by others. It is the key, or one of the keys, to the already solved problems. And not only so.
