The final word

“At what point shall we expect danger? By what means shall we fortify against it? Shall we expect some transatlantic military giant, to step the ocean, and crush us at a blow? Never! All the armies of Europe, Asia and Africa combined, with all the treasure of the earth. . . .could not take a drink from the Ohio, or make a track on the Blue Ridge, in a trial of a thousand years…if destruction be our lot, we must ourselves be its author and finisher. As a nation of free men, we must live through all time or die by suicide.”

– Abraham Lincoln, Jan. 27,1838
