The shadow is what we think of it; the tree is the real thing."

You really have to think about this quote. What we do affects our reputation, just as Lincoln's actions would either please or displease his people. Even though he wants to think of the shadow, he goes with the tree instead because he knows that his actions will benefit the people.
