A Quote by Alexander B. Morrison on beginning, jesus, life, love, people, and promises

I finish where I began: Jesus' statement "Come and see" provides both an invitation and a promise to all people everywhere. Come to Him; see Him as King of Kings and Lord of Lords; recognize in Him the great Messiah who will come again with healing in His wings, to set His people free. He will wrap you about in the cloak of His redeeming love, and your life will be changed forever.

A Quote by Abraham Lincoln on belief, existence, history, presidency, promises, purpose, and slavery

Broken campaign promises are as old as the Presidency itself. Here the "Great Emancipator" makes an inaugural pledge that history would sooner forget. "I have no purpose, directly or indirectly, to interfere with the institution of slavery in the States where it exists. I believe I have no lawful right to do so, and I have no inclination to do so."
