Lincoln, 1858 “‘A house divided against itself cannot stand.’ I believe this government cannot endure permanently half slave and half free. I do not expect the Union to be dissolved; I do not expect the house to fall; but I do expect it will cease to be divided. It will become all one thing, or all the other. Either the opponents of slavery will arrest the further spread of it, and place it where the public mind shall rest in the belief that it is in the course of ultimate extinction, or its advocates will push it forward till it shall become alike lawful in all the States, old as well as new, North as well as South.”

Lincoln, 1854 Nearly 80 years ago we began by declaring that all men are created equal; but now from that beginning we have run down to the other declaration, that, for some men to enslave others is a ‘sacred right of self-government.’ These principles cannot stand together….Our republican robe is soiled, and trailed in the dust. Let us repurify it…Let us re-adopt the Declaration of Independence, and, with it, the practices, and policy, which harmonize with it.”
