" 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 their revolutionary right to dismember it or overthrow it."

" In the untimely loss of your noble son, our affliction here, is scarcely less than your own. So much of promised usefulness to one’s country, and of bright hopes for one’s self and friends, have rarely been so suddenly dashed, as in his fall.”– Letter to Ephraim D. and Phoebe Ellsworth May 25, 1861

" Every man is said to have his peculiar ambition. Whether it be true or not, I can say for one that I have no other so great as that of being truly esteemed of my fellow men, by rendering myself worthy of their esteem. How far I shall succeed in gratifying this ambition, is yet to be developed.”– Address to the People of Sangamon County, March 9, 1832

" I am sometimes astonished at the part I am acting in this terrible drama. I can hardly believe that I am the same man I was a few years ago when I was living in my humble way with you in Springfield. I often ask myself the question, ‘When shall I awake and find it all a dream?
Letter to Rev. Noyes W. Miner - April, 1862

"The nation is asking what I will do now that I have been elected President. I'm going to Disneyland"
Lincoln's comments to the Washington Post - November 1860
Disneyland? Seriously? :eek: But Disneyland wasn't opened until 1955... And Walt Disney was born in 1901! I'm baffled.

Unless Lincoln meant something different with Disneyland than what it means today? :help:
