Frederick Douglas Quotes


5 Frederick Douglas quotes:



"It is easier to build strong children than to repair broken men."
"A battle lost or won is easily described, understood, and appreciated, but the moral growth of a great nation requires reflection, as well as observation, to appreciate it."
"At a time like this, scorching iron, not convincing argument, is needed."
"America is false to the past, false to the present, and solemnly binds herself to be false to the future."
"No nation can now shut itself up from the surrounding world, and trot round in the same old path of its fathers without interference. The time was when such could be done. Long established customs of hurtful character could formerly fence themselves in, and do their evil work with social impunity. Knowledge was then confined and enjoyed by the privileged few, and the multitude walked on in mental darkness. But a change has now come over the affairs of mankind. Walled cities and empires have become unfashionable. ... Intelligence is penetrating the darkest corners of the globe. Oceans no longer divide, but link nations together. ... What to the Slave Is the Fourth of July?"
