“The freedom of death is the ultimate compensation for the misery of life.” – Steven Magee

From “Lincoln 365,” by Arnold Kunst
August 28
'This is a world of compensations; and he who would be no slave must consent to have no slave.'
- Abraham Lincoln

'Fear is an instructor of great sagacity and the herald of all revolutions. One thing he always teaches is that there is rottenness where he appears. He is a carrion crow; and although you see not well what he hovers for, there is death somewhere. Our property is timid, our laws are timid, our cultivated classes are timid. Fear for ages has boded and mewed and gibbered over government and property. That obscene bird is not there for nothing. He indicates great wrongs which must be revised.'
- Ralph Waldo Emerson
