Famous Quotes: Abraham Lincoln – The Last Best Hope of Earth

A month before signing the Emancipation Proclamation, Lincoln sent a letter to Congress urging them to think of what would become of the Union after the war. As we have seen in the Middle East and other regions, civil wars do not typically begat unity among states. However, America stands as a great example of what is possible when a free people choose to forgive and unite together.

Here is an excerpt from his address:

“Fellow-citizens, we cannot escape history. We of this Congress and this administration, will be remembered in spite of ourselves. No personal significance, or insignificance, can spare one or another of us. The fiery trial through which we pass, will light us down, in honor or dishonor, to the latest generation. We say we are for the Union. The world will not forget that we say this. We know how to save the Union. The world knows we do know how to save it. We — even we here — hold the power, and bear the responsibility. In giving freedom to the slave, we assure freedom to the free — honorable alike in what we give, and what we preserve. We shall nobly save, or meanly lose, the last best hope of earth. Other means may succeed; this could not fail. The way is plain, peaceful, generous, just — a way which, if followed, the world will forever applaud, and God must forever bless.” – Abraham Lincoln

I loved this quote below from that passage and thought I would share it. Do you think this still rings true today?


“We shall nobly save, or meanly lose, the last best hope of earth.” – Abraham Lincoln
