We who are crushed to earth with heavy chains, who travel a weary, rugged, thorny road, groping through midnight darkness on earth, earn our right to enjoy the sunshine in the great hereafter. At the grave, at least, we should be permitted to lay our burdens down, that a new world, a world of brightness, may open to us. The light that is denied us here should grow into a flood of effulgence beyond the dark, mysterious shadows of death.More Elizabeth Keckley quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Notwithstanding all the wrongs that slavery heaped upon me, I can bless it for one thing-youth's important lesson of self-reliance.More Elizabeth Keckley quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Friends are a recompense for all the woes of the darkest pages of life.More Elizabeth Keckley quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I was born a slave-was the child of slave parents-therefore I came upon the earth free in God-like thought, but fettered in action.More Elizabeth Keckley quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
For an act may be wrong judged purely by itself, but when the motive that prompted the act is understood, it is construed differently. I lay it down as an axiom, that only that is criminal in the sight of God where crime is meditated.More Elizabeth Keckley quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
