As quoted in: Francis Carpenter, Six Months at the White House with Abraham Lincoln (1866)
“I do the very best I know how-the very best I can; and I mean to keep doing so until the end. If the end brings me out all right, what is said against me won't amount to anything. If the end brings me out wrong, ten angels swearing I was right would make no difference.”
Francis Carpenter, Six Months at the White House, 1867
“Sir, my concern is not whether God is on our side, My great concern is to be on God's side, for God is always right.”
As quoted in: The Leisure Hour, Volume 30 (Paternoster Row, 1881), p. 127. May be apocryphal.
