With Malice Toward None, With Charity For All

From President Abraham Lincoln’s Second Inaugural Address

Text of Lincoln’s Second Inaugural Address, The Lincoln Memorial, Washington, DC

With malice toward none; with charity for all; with firmness in the right, as God gives us to see the right, 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 a lasting peace, among ourselves, and with all nations.
