    Quotes by Frederick Douglass

    • I prefer to be true to myself, even at the hazard of incurring the ridicule of others, rather than to be false, and to incur my own abhorrence.
    • If there is no struggle, there is no progress.
    • People might not get all they work for in this world, but they must certainly work for all they get.
    • Where justice is denied, where poverty is enforced, where ignorance prevails, and where any one class is made to feel that society is in an organized conspiracy to oppress, rob, and degrade them, neither persons nor property will be safe.
      Speech, April 1886
