From “Lincoln 365,” by Arnold Kunst:
'Honest old Abe, when the war first began,
Denied abolition was part of his plan;
Honest old Abe has since made a decree,
The war must go on till the slaves are all free.
As both can't be honest, will some one tell how
If honest Abe then, he is honest Abe now?'

‘See to it that your inner sense of peace is so deep and secure that troubles which would dislocate lesser men leave you annoyed, perhaps, but ever serene.'
- Arnold Kunst
