855 – Quote about your mind

“You’ve been given a mind of your own. You didn’t have to buy it. You didn’t have to earn it. The most powerful and entertaining tool a thing can possess and you were all given one for free. Don’t give it away for someone else to use. Don’t let someone else buy it from you for peanuts. It’s yours. Use it for yourself. It can literally create anything. It does not have the restrictions you have been taught it has. It can comprehend anything. So have fun, and f**k anyone that tries to take it away from you. Fill it with whatever you want to fill it with… and see what kind of magic you produce.”

787 – “Liberty sets the mind free, fosters independence and unorthodox thinking and ideas. But it does not offer instant prosperity or happiness and wealth to everyone. This is something that politicians in particular must keep in mind.”

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
