1. "Slavery is founded in the selfishness of man's nature-opposition to it in his love of justice. These principles are an enternal antagonism; and when brought into collision so fiercely, as slavery extension brings them, shocks, and throes, and convulsions must ceaselessly follow."
~Speech in Peoria, Illinois, October 16, 1854
2. "I do not stand today pledged to the abolition of slavery in the District of Columbia."
~Speech in Freeport, Illinois, August 27, 1858
3. "To the best of my judgement I have labored for the, and not against, the Union."
~Speech at Springfield, Illinois, October 29, 1858
