Abraham Lincoln quotes about slavery

Slavery Quotes

Follow us! Whenever I hear anyone arguing for slavery, I feel a strong impulse to see it tried on him personally. Tags: Abraham Lincoln. Slavery is theft -- theft of a life, theft of work, theft of any property or produce, theft even of the children a slave might have borne. Not only does the Christian religion, but nature herself, cry out against the state of slavery. Anytime anyone is enslaved, or in any way deprived of his liberty, if that person is a human being, as far as I am concerned he is justified to resort to whatever methods necessary to bring about his liberty again.

Harshness to me is giving somebody false hopes and not following through.

Frederick Douglass was an OG badass who had no time for mincing words or keeping his opinions to himself. That would be enough to keep most people busy, but those were just his side hustles—he spent most of his time working to end slavery and to get equal rights for other African Americans. He was fierce, he was wise beyond all measure, and he never gave up. In fact, just weeks before he died, a young black man asked him for his best advice. To him, your celebration is a sham; your boasted liberty, an unholy license; your national greatness, swelling vanity; your sounds of rejoicing are empty and heartless; your denunciation of tyrants, brass-fronted impudence; your shouts of liberty and equality, hollow mockery; your prayers and hymns, your sermons and thanksgivings, with all your religious parade and solemnity, mere bombast, fraud, deception, impiety, and hypocrisy—a thin veil to cover up crimes which would disgrace a nation of savages.
