Quote: A Warning From Abraham Lincoln

“At what point shall we expect the approach of danger? … Shall we expect some transatlantic military giant to step the ocean and crush us at a blow? Never! All the armies of Europe, Asia, and Africa combined … could not by force take a drink from the Ohio or make a track on the Blue Ridge in a trial of a thousand years. At what point, then, is the approach of danger to be expected?

Continuing Same Quote:
…”I answer, if it ever reach us it must spring up amongst us; it cannot come from abroad. If destruction be our lot we must ourselves be its author and finisher. As a nation of freemen we must live through all time, or die by suicide.”

Special Video Presentation: “The Wisdom of Abraham Lincoln”

Well … for long time now, over on our blog, we have been waiting to feature a certain photo montage of Abraham Lincoln … then, today, I decided to feature this video, called “The Wisdom of Abraham Lincoln.” It features lots of photographs, yes, but it provides a real glimpse into the mind, and heart, of President Lincoln.

On our blog, still today, one of the most viewed posts we’ve done is one from several months ago, entitled “Abraham Lincoln’s Road to the White House,” in which I quoted directly from a poster I have hanging prominently in our office. It has to do with perseverance.
Here’s a direct link to that Post:

I know that so many of us love to collect quotes, so I’m sure you’ll enjoy this presentation. I just sat back, relaxed, and thought … as I read along … hope you will too!
