Attributed to Abraham Lincoln in Josiah G. Holland, The Life of Abraham Lincoln (1866), p. 23; and George Alfred Townsend, The Real Life of Abraham Lincoln (1867), p. 6. According to Townsend, Lincoln made this remark to his law partner, William Herndon. It is disputed whether this quote refers to Lincoln's natural mother, Nancy Hanks Lincoln, who died when he was nine years old, or to his stepmother, Sarah Bush (Johnston) Lincoln.
