Quote on Relativity

"When we sit with a nice girl for two hours, we think it is only for a minute. When we sit on a hot stove for a minute, we think it is for two hours. And that is relativity."

  • Albert Einstein

Emancipation Proclamation of Abraham Lincoln

On this day October 6th 1862 Abraham Lincoln delivered one of the defining speeches in American’s history.

It was a speech announcing the unconditional end of slavery

"And by virtue of the power, and for the purpose aforesaid, I do order and declare that all
persons held as slaves within said designated States, and parts of States, are, and henceforward
shall be free; and that the Executive government of the United States, including the military and
naval authorities thereof, will recognize and maintain the freedom of said persons. And I hereby
enjoin upon the people so declared to be free to abstain from all violence, unless in necessary
self-defence; and I recommend to them that, in all cases when allowed, they labor faithfully for
reasonable wages."
