As soon as slavery fired upon the flag it was felt, we all felt, even those who did not object to slaves, that slavery must be destroyed. We felt that it was a stain to the Union that men should be bought and sold like cattle.
Christianity is most admirably adapted to the training of slaves, to the perpetuation of a slave society; in short, to the very conditions confronting us to-day. … The rulers of the earth have realized long ago what potent poison inheres in the Christian religion. That is the reason they foster it; that is why they leave nothing undone to instill it into the blood of the people. They know only too well that the subtleness of the Christian teachings is a more powerful protection against rebellion and discontent than the club or the gun.emma goldman

"Suppose I broke away and left you, or made it impossible for you to stay. That I was base and false; in every way unworthy of your love, and it was clearly right for you to go, what would you do then?""Go away and–"He interrupted with a triumphant laugh, "Die as heroines always do, tender slaves as they are.""No, live and forget you", was the unexpected reply.Louisa May Alcott
Necessity is the plea for every infringement of human freedom. It is the argument of tyrants; it is the creed of slaves.
Man treats woman as his own property and not as being capable of feelings, like himself. The way man treats women is much worse than the way landlords treat servants and the high-caste treat the low-caste. These treat them so demeaningly only in situations mutually affecting them; but men treat cruelly and as slaves, from their birth till death.periyar e. v. ramasamy
To how much lying, extravagance, hypocrisy and servilism does not the fear of ridicule lead? Human respect makes us cowards and slaves. It may deter from evil, but much oftener it drives to baseness. “We are too much afraid,” said Cato, “of death, exile and poverty.”john lancaster spalding
I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave owners will be able to sit down together at the table of brotherhood... I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.Martin Luther King Jr.
God seeks comrades and claims love. The devil seeks slaves and claims obedience.rabindranath tagore

I see that I've said something you don't like,Something uncouth and bold and terrifying,And yet, I'll tell you this:It won't be till each one of us is willing,Not you, not me, but every one of us,To hang upon a cross for every manWho suffers, starves and dies,Fight his sore battles as they were our own,And help him from the darkness and the mire,That there will be no crosses and no tyrants,No Herods and no slaves.stephen vincent benét
How could a person forget about the plains, the meadows, watered with the blood of our forefathers; abandon those places where Turkish raiders had hidden their steeds for a full four hundred years, with our mosques, our tombs, our dervish retreats, our bridges and our castles, to leave them to our slaves, to be driven out of Rumelia to Anatolia: this was beyond a person’s endurance. I am prepared to gladly sacrifice the remaining years of my life to take revenge on the Bulgarians, the Greeks, and the Montenegrans.İsmail enver
We are all of us more or less the slaves of opinion.william hazlitt
"'Monday and Tuesday and Monday and Tuesday and Monday and Tuesday,' so the poor slaves had to sing in their labor for the puca. And finally a great savior broke the charm.

But there are other elements in this…"r. a. lafferty
An uneducated population may be degraded; a population educated, but not in righteousness, will be ungovernable. The one may be slaves, the other must be tyrants.henry melvill
The peoples of Yugoslavia do not want Fascism. They do not want a totalitarian regime, they do not want to become slaves of the German and Italian financial oligarchy as they never wanted to become reconciled to the semi-colonial dependence imposed on them by the so-called Western democracies after the first imperialist war.josip broz tito
Corrupted freemen are the worst of slaves.
I hate the French because they are all slaves and wear wooden shoes.Oliver Goldsmith

This also is remarkable in India, that all Indians are free , and no Indian at all is a slave . In this the Indians agree with the Lacedaemonians . Yet the Lacedaemonians have Helots for slaves, who perform the duties of slaves; but the Indians have no slaves at all, much less is any Indian a slave.
Those who worship God for the hope of gaining, they’re not real worshippers, they’re merchants. Those who worship God out of fear (of punishment), they’re slaves. And those who worship God to be grateful towards their creator, they are the free people, and their worship is a real one.
Pressure of opinion a hundred years ago brought about the emancipation of the slaves'.peter benenson
