A Quote by Abraham Lincoln on belief, government, and slavery

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.

Abraham Lincoln (1809 - 1865)
