Edgar Allan Poe & Abraham Lincoln

Washington, D.C. February 4th, 1849.

Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt.

* * *
You can fool all the people some of the time, and some of the people all the time, but you cannot fool all the people all the time.

* * *
Government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the Earth.

* * *

This country, with its institutions, belongs to the people who inhabit it. Whenever they shall grow weary of the existing government, they can exercise their constitutional right of amending it, or exercise their revolutionary right to overthrow it.
Abraham Lincoln
