804 – “We do not know the true value of our moments until they have undergone the test of memory.

–Georges Duhamel

751 – Quote From Abraham Lincoln’s Second Annual Message

“The dogmas of the quiet past are inadequate to the stormy present. The occasion is piled high with difficulty, and we must rise with the occasion. As our case is new, so we must think anew and act anew. We must disenthrall ourselves, and then we shall save our country.
Fellow-citizens, we can not escape history. We of this Congress and this Administration will be remembered in spite of ourselves. No personal significance or insignificance can spare one or another of us. The fiery trial through which we pass will light us down in honor or dishonor to the latest generation.”

–Abraham Lincoln, 16th President of the United States
