The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it far above our power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember, what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here.

第 194 頁 - Thou, too, sail on, O Ship of State! Sail on, O UNION strong and great! Humanity with all its fears, With all the hopes of future years, Is hanging breathless on thy fate.
第 244 頁 - It is too probable that no plan we propose will be adopted. Perhaps another dreadful conflict is to be sustained.

Let us raise a standard to which the wise and the honest can repair : the event is in the hand of God.
