Some of Abraham Lincoln's Thoughts on Freedom...

"Because we are free, we can never be indifferent to the fate of freedom elsewhere.  Our moral sense dictates a clear cut preference for these societies which share with us an abiding respect for individual human rights.  We do not seek to intimidate, but it is clear that a world which others can dominate with impunity would be inhospitable to decency and a threat to the well-being of all people."  - Letter to H.L. Pearce, April 6, 1859

"Those who deny freedom to others deserve it not for themselves." -

"I leave you, hoping that the lamp of liberty will burn in your bosoms until there shall no longer be a doubt that all men are created free and equal." -July 10, 1858 Speech at Chicago, IL
