Quote:I do not wish to be misunderstood upon this subject of slavery in this country. I suppose it may long exist, and perhaps the best way for it to come to an end peaceably is for it to exist for a length of time.

There we should in every way resist it as a wrong, treating it as a wrong, with the fixed idea that it must and will come to an end. - Abraham Lincoln Quotes

  [B]riefing is not reading. In fact it is the antithesis of reading. Briefing is terse, factual and to the point. Reading is untidy, discursive and perpetually inviting. Briefing closes down a subject, reading opens it up. - Alan Bennett Quotes soni 0 21 09-22-2017, 10:30 AM
