A Quote by Abraham Lincoln on cities, family, nations, people, and sympathy

The most notable feature of a disturbance in your city last summer was the hanging of some working people by other working people. It should never be so. The strongest bond of human sympathy, outside of the family relation, should be one uniting all working people, of all nations, and tongues, and kindreds.

Abraham Lincoln (1809 - 1865)
