A Quote by Abraham Lincoln on children, college, constitution, country, fatherhood, honor, independence, justice, laws, liberty, life, motherhood, nations, politics, posterity, prosperity, religion, revolution, sacred, schools, and support

Let every lover of liberty, every well-wisher to his posterity, swear by the blood of the revolution never to violate, in the least particular, the laws of the country and never to tolerate their violation by others. As the patriots of '76 did to the support of the declaration of independence, so to the support of the constitution and laws, let every American pledge his life, his prosperity and his sacred honor. Let every man remember that to violate the laws is to trample on the blood of his fathers and to tear the charter of his own and his children's liberty. Let reverence for the laws be breathed by every American mother to the lisping babe that prattles on her lap. Let it be taught in schools, in seminaries, and in colleges. Let it be preached from the pulpit, proclaimed in the legislative halls, and enforced in courts of justice. In short, let it become the political religion of the nation.

Abraham Lincoln (1809 - 1865)

A Quote by A. J. Gossip on church, emotion, feeling, imagination, religion, and trouble

A basic trouble is that most Churches limit themselves unnecessarily by addressing their message almost exclusively to those who are open to religious impression through the intellect, whereas . . . there are at least four other gateways - the emotions, the imagination, the aesthetic feeling, and the will - through which they can be reached.
