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.

You were right and I was wrong

You are not lazy, and still you are an idler
