A Quote by Abraham Lincoln on accidents, belief, falsehood, guilt, maxims, and truth

I believe it is an established maxim in morals that he who makes an assertion without knowing whether it is true or false is guilty of falsehood, and the accidental truth of the assertion does not justify or excuse him.

Abraham Lincoln (1809 - 1865)
