[to Ulysses S. Grant] Each of us has made it possible for the other to do terrible things.

Abraham Lincoln

George Yeaman

Buzzards' guts, man!

Abraham Lincoln

No one has ever lived who knows better than you the proper placement of footfalls on treacherous paths.

Mary Todd Lincoln

You think I'm ignorant of what you're up to because you haven't discussed this scheme with me as you ought to have done? When have I ever been so easily bamboozled? I believe you when you insist that amending the Constitution and abolishing slavery will end this war. And since you're sending my son into the war, woe to you if you fail to pass the amendment.

Mary Todd Lincoln

Seward can't do it; you must. Because if you fail to acquire the necessary votes, woe unto you, sir. You will answer to me.

Abraham Lincoln

[seeing Lincoln begin to address the room as news comes in from Wilmington] You're going to tell one of your stories! I can't stand to hear another one of your stories!

Edwin Stanton

With malice toward none, with charity for all, with firmness in the right as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in, to bind up the nation's wounds, to care for him who shall have borne the battle and for his widow and his orphan, to do all which may achieve and cherish a just and lasting peace among ourselves and with all nations.

Abraham Lincoln

Trust? Gentlemen, you seem to have forgotten that our chosen career is politics.
