    And “Ich bin ein Berliner” is what Lincoln said. Congrats Gladys! Not everyone gets both the quote and the President wrong.

    Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent, a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.

    Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure. We are met on a great battle-field of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of that field, as a final resting place for those who here gave their lives that that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this.

    But, in a larger sense, we can not dedicate—we can not consecrate—we can not hallow—this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor 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. It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us—that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion—that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain—that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom—and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.

    —Abraham Lincoln

    How about something more current? “Read my lips; no new taxes.” “I did not inhale.” "That depends on what your definition of “is” is." “Yuge.” Or, even our current president can help. "“We hold these truths to be self-evident, all men and women are created by the — Go — you know — you know the thing.“​

    Now, that’s remembering words without the context. The “Ask not…” statement was by John Kennedy, not Abe Lincoln. But, this does show the lack of history awareness in our society.

    “ I pray that our Heavenly Father may assuage the anguish of your bereavement, and leave you only the cherished memory of the loved and lost, and the solemn pride that must be yours to have laid so costly a sacrifice upon the altar of Freedom.” part of Lincoln’s letter to the mother who lost 5 sons and was read in Saving Private Ryan

    Wilberforce should just read about famous President quotes himself. One of my favorites is by President Truman – The Buck Stops Here. “You do not lead by hitting people over the head — that’s assault, not leadership.” President Eisenhower. Also Ike also said – I hate war as only a soldier who has lived it can, only as one who has seen its brutality, its futility, its stupidity.”
