No fellow-man shall learn my fate, Or where my ashes lie; Unless by beasts drawn round their bait, Or by the ravens' cry. I've resolved the deed to do, And this the place to do it: This heart I'll rush a dagger through, Though I in hell should rue it! What is hell to one like me Who pleasures never knew; By friends consigned to misery, By hope deserted too?
To ease me of this power to think, That through my bosom raves, I'll headlong leap from hell's high brink, And wallow in its waves. Though devils yell, and burning chains May waken long regret; Their frightful screams, and piercing pains, Will help me to forget. I'm prepared, through endless night, To take that fiery berth! Think not with tales of hell to fright Me, who am damn'd on earth!
Sweet steel! I strike! It quivers in that heart Which drives me to this end; I draw and kiss the bloody dart, My last — my only friend! This Lincoln, whom so many living friends and foes alike deemed foolish, hid his bitterness in laughter; fed his sympathy on solitude; and met recurring disaster with whimsicality to muffle the murmur of a bleeding heart.
Out of the tragic sense of life he pitied where others blamed; bowed his own shoulders with the woes of the weak; endured humanely his little day of chance power; and won through death what life disdains to bestow upon such simple souls — lasting peace and everlasting glory. How prudently — to echo Wendell Phillips — we proud men compete for nameless graves, while now and then some starveling of Fate forgets himself into immortality.

Lincoln if the story of his interview with the complainant against General Grant was true. The President inquired very solicitously, if the man could tell him where the General got his liquor. The President replied that he would like very much to find out so he could get a quantity of it and send a barrel to all his Major Generals.
Lincoln said he had heard the story before and it would be very good if he had said it, but he did not, and he supposed it was charged to him to give it currency. Bitter complaints were made to the King against his General Wolfe in which it was charged that he was mad. Plum, When I left Springfield I asked the people to pray for me.
I was not a Christian. When I buried my son, the severest trial of my life, I was not a Christian. But when I went to Gettysburg and saw the graves of thousands of our soldiers, I then and there consecrated myself to Christ. Yes, I do love Jesus. This has been portrayed to have been Lincoln's "reply" to an unnamed Illinois clergyman when asked if he loved Jesus , as quoted in The Lincoln Memorial Album — Immortelles edited by Osborn H.
Oldroyd [New York: G. Mr Oldroyd has endeavored to learn for me in what paper he found it and on whose authority it rests, but without result. He does not remember where he found it. It is inherently improbable, and rests on no adequate testimony. It ought to be wholly disregarded.

It is a species of intemperance within itself, for it goes beyond the bounds of reason in that it attempts to control a man's appetite by legislation, and makes a crime out of things that are not crimes. A Prohibition law strikes a blow at the very principles upon which our government was founded.

Sometimes attributed to Lincoln since a speech of Douglas MacArthur citing him as its author, this is actually from a poem by Ella Wheeler Wilcox. My earlier views on the unsoundness of the Christian scheme of salvation and the human origin of the scriptures have become clearer and stronger with advancing years, and I see no reason for thinking I shall ever change them.

I don't remember much after that. Hopefully someone can help me!! Please help I want to read this book again but I cant remember the title or author.

I could be wrong. Please help with the title of this book!
