“…as you have made up your organization upon principle, stand by it; for as surely as God reigns over you and has inspired your mind, and given you a sense of propriety, and continues to give you hope, so surely will you still cling to these ideas, and you will at last come back again after your wanderings, merely to do your work over again.”
Speech at Chicago, July 10 , 1858
“Important principles may and must be flexible.”
Last public address, Washington, D.C., April 11, 1965
