Pay attention to his words, Mr. Trump

Today in 1865, our 16th President of the United States died after being assassinated by John Wilkes Booth, a confederate spy.

Quotes from Abraham Lincoln:

“I hold that while man exists, it is his duty to improve not only his own condition, but to assist in ameliorating mankind.”

“Don’t interfere with anything in the Constitution. That must be maintained, for it is the only safeguard of our liberties.”

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

“Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man’s character, give him power.”

“America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.”

“I am naturally anti-slavery. If slavery is not wrong, nothing is wrong. I can not remember when I did not so think and feel.”

And finally,

“No man has a good enough memory to be a successful liar.”
