A quote by Abraham Lincoln, 1809 - 1865
- The shepherd drives the wolf from the sheep's throat, for which the sheep thanks the shepherd as his liberator, while the wolf denounces him for the same act as the liberty, especially as the sheep was a black one.
Abraham Lincoln - speech at Sanitary Fair, Baltimore, Maryland (18 April 1864), cited in Collected Works of Abraham Lincoln, Vol. 8, Roy P. Basler, ed. (1953), p. 302
