Mary Todd Lincoln quotes


If you keep making jokes like that, somebody is going to shoot you, father.
Mary Todd Lincoln

Others live on in a careless and lukewarm state - not appearing to fill Longfellow's measure: 'Into each life, some rain must fall.'
Mary Todd Lincoln

I don't think I'm allowed to talk about that. It is definitely not me. The role has been cast.
Mary Todd Lincoln


Clouds and darkness surround us, yet Heaven is just, and the day of triumph will surely come, when justice and truth will be vindicated. Our wrongs will be made right, and we will once more, taste the blessings of freedom. 
Mary Ann Todd Lincoln

I explain to you, exactly and truly, how we are circumstanced. A greater portion of our means is unavailable, consisting of a house in S. Springfield and some wild lands in Iowa. Notwithstanding my great and good husband's life was sacrificed for his country, we are left to struggle in a manner...of life undeserved. Roving Generals have elegant mansions showered upon them, and the American people leave the family of the Martyred President to struggle as best they may! Strange justice this. 
refers to General Grant, a war hero, who was given homes in Galena, Philadelphia, and Washington 
Mary Ann Todd Lincoln, August 17, 1865


“Beautiful, Glorious Scotland, has spoilt me for every other country.”
― Mary Todd Lincoln


“I would rather marry a good man, a man of mind, with a hope and bright prospects ahead for position, fame and power than to marry all the houses, gold and bones in the world.”
― Mary Todd Lincoln
