I can't die but once.
I freed a thousand slaves. I could have freed a thousand more if only they knew they were slaves.
I grew up like a neglected weed—ignorant of liberty, having no experience of it.
I had crossed the line. I was free; but there was no one to welcome me to the land of freedom. I was a stranger in a strange land.
I had reasoned this out in my mind, there was one of two things I had a right to, liberty or death; if I could not have one, I would have the other.
I looked at my hands to see if I was the same person. There was such a glory over everything. The sun came up like gold through the trees, and I felt like I was in heaven.
I was the conductor of the Underground Railroad for eight years, and I can say what most conductors can't say; I never ran my train off the track and I never lost a passenger.
I would fight for my liberty so long as my strength lasted, and if the time came for me to go, the Lord would let them take me.
If I could have convinced more slaves that they were slaves, I could have freed thousands more.
Lord, I'm going to hold steady on to You and You've got to see me through.
Never wound a snake; kill it.
Quakers almost as good as colored. They call themselves friends and you can trust them every time.
You'll be free or die!
