Lincoln's Viewpoint

The best part of homeschooling is diving so deeply into history. In recognition of Lincoln's birthday today, I add a few quotes from a man I greatly admire for his fortitude, self-effacing humor, and sacrifice to the greater good for the glory of God.
(from the Capitol Bldg. in Washington, D.C.)
"Surely God would not have created such a being as man, with an ability to grasp the infinite, to exist only for a day! No, no, Man was made for immortality." - A. Lincoln
"Intelligence, patriotism, Christianity, and a firm reliance on Him, who has never yet forsaken this favored land, are still competent to adjust, in the best way, all our present difficulty." - A. Lincoln (First Inaugural Address, March 4, 1861)
