Top 10 Unforgettable Memorial Day Quotes

By

Not surprisingly, some of the greatest words ever written have
celebrated fallen heroes.

Not the least of which are found in Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address:

“Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing
whether that nation, or any nation so conceived
and so dedicated, can long endure. We are met on
a great battle-field of that war. We have come to
dedicate a portion of that field, as a final resting
place for those who here gave their lives that that
nation might live. It is altogether fitting and
proper that we should do this.”

In addition to the great words by Abraham Lincoln, I have compiled 10 quotes that have withstood the test of time as some of the most poignant ever written. I have selected them because they “say” the most in the fewest words. As you read them, close your eyes, take a deep breath, and say “thanks.”

Their graves should ever be green.”
