Liberty & Tyranny - quote

Quote from Abraham Lincoln:

"We all declare for liberty; but in using the same word we do not all mean the same thing. With some the word liberty may mean for each man to do as he pleases with himself, and the product of his labor; while with others, the same word many mean for some men to do as they please with other men, and the product of other men's labor. Here are two, not only different, but incompatible things, called by the same name - liberty. And it follows that each of the things is, by the respective parties, called by two different and incompatible names - liberty and tyranny." -- April 18, 1864 - Address at Sanitary Fair, Baltimore, Maryland

The above quote used as the title for a book from Mark Levin which I have bought and am now reading! But I must admit, I copied the quote from someone on a forum discussing this book. Just thought the quote was so marvelous for NOW that I couldn't wait to post it.
