What constitutes the bulwark of our liberty and independence? It is not our frowning battlements, our bristling sea-coasts... - Abraham Lincoln Quotes

Quote:What constitutes the bulwark of our liberty and independence? It is not our frowning battlements, our bristling sea-coasts, our army and our navy. ... Our reliance is in the love of liberty which God has planted in us. Our defense is in the spirit which prized liberty as the heritage of all men in all lands everywhere. Destroy this spirit and you have planted the seeds of despotism at your own doors. ... you have lost the genius of your own independence and become the fit subjects of the first cunning tyrant who rises among you. - Abraham Lincoln Quotes
