Strona 307 - One of the expedients of party to acquire influence, within particular districts, Is to misrepresent the opinions and aims of other districts. You cannot shield yourselves too much against the jealousies and heart-burnings, which spring from these misrepresentations; they tend to render alien to each other those, who ought to be bound together by fraternal affection.
Strona 319 - I never mean, unless some particular circumstances should compel me to it, to possess another slave by purchase, it being among my first wishes to see some plan adopted by which slavery in this country may be abolished by law.
Strona 401 - This liberty is the proper end and object of authority and cannot subsist without it; and it is a liberty to that only which is good, just, and honest.
Strona 307 - In contemplating the causes which may disturb our union, it occurs as matter of serious concern that any ground should have been furnished for characterizing parties, by geographical discriminations — Northern and Southern; Atlantic and Western...
Strona 24 - Fame is the spur that the clear spirit doth raise (That last infirmity of noble mind) To scorn delights and live laborious days; But the fair guerdon when we hope to find, And think to burst out into sudden blaze, Comes the blind Fury with the abhorred shears, And slits the thin-spun life.

To emancipate them during her life would, though earnestly wished by me, be attended with such insuperable difficulties, on account of their intermixture by...
Strona 321 - Would to God a like spirit might diffuse itself generally into the minds of the people of this country ! But I despair of seeing it. Some petitions were presented to the Assembly, at its last session, for the abolition of slavery ; but they could scarcely obtain a reading. To set the slaves afloat at once, would, I really believe, be productive of much inconvenience and mischief; but by degrees it certainly might, and assuredly ought to be effected, and that, too, by legislative authority.
Strona 234 - Servant of God, well done ; well hast thou fought The better fight, who single hast maintained Against revolted multitudes the cause Of truth, in word mightier than they in arms ; And for the testimony of truth hast borne Universal reproach, far worse to bear Than- violence ; for this was all thy care, To stand approved in sight of God, though worlds Judged thee perverse...
