“I deem it just to the country, to myself, to you, that I should see everything, hear everything, and have every light that can possibly be brought within my reach, to aid me before I shall speak officially, in order that when I do speak, I may have the best means of taking true and correct grounds.”
Attributed, The Writings of Abraham Lincoln, 1861, by Arthur Lapsley
