“You are freedom’s swift-winged angels, that fly round the world; I am confined in bands of iron! O that I were free!”

Page 5

“I prayed for twenty years but received no answer until I prayed with my legs.”

Page 6

“It was life and death with me. But I remained firm to my resolution, on the third day of September, 1838, I left my chains, and succeeded in reaching New York without the slightest interruption of any kind.”

Page 7

“I would unite with anybody to do right and with nobody to do wrong.”

“In a composite nation like ours, as before the law, there should be no rich, no poor, no high, no low, no white, no black, but common country, common citizenship, equal rights and a common destiny.”
