Quotational Therapy: Part 73 -- Not Abraham Lincoln.

America's 16th President-

honestabe.gif

Abraham Lincoln, had he not been assassinated, would have turned 197 years old on Sunday. Many quotes were attributed to Abraham Lincoln. Some of them, he never uttered.

Lincoln did not say this:

"To sin by silence, when they should protest, makes cowards of men."


Lincoln did not say this:

"There's no honorable way to kill, no gentle way to destroy. There's nothing good in war except its ending."


Lincoln did not say this:

"The strength of the nation lies in the homes of its people."


And Lincoln did not say this, either:

"You can fool all the people some of the time and some of the people all of the time, but you cannot fool all of the people all of the time."


But he did say this, in dedicating the military cemetery at Gettysburg:

"...that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain--that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom--and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth."

The second quote is from a Star Trek episode with an alien posing as Lincoln to better interact with Captain Kirk, for whom real Lincoln was a hero.

"There's no honorable way to kill, no gentle way to destroy. There's nothing good in war except its ending."

That can't not be a Lincoln quote - it was in Call of Duty.

What I want to know, is who DID say you can fool some of the people all of the time, etc. etc.
