AUTHOR:Abraham Lincoln (1809–1865)
QUOTATION:  With malice toward none; with charity for all; with firmness in the right, as God gives us to see the right, 1  let us strive on to finish the work we are in; to bind up the nation’s wounds, to care for him who shall have borne the battle, and for his widow and his orphan—to do all which may achieve and cherish a just and lasting peace among ourselves and with all nations.
ATTRIBUTION:Second Inaugural Address. March 4, 1865.
