NEGRO

The image of God cut in ebony.
      - Thomas Fuller (1)

We've scrubb'd the negroes till we've nearly kill'd em;
  And finding that, we cannot wash them white,
    We mean to gild 'em.
      - Thomas Hood

In the negro countenance you will often meet with strong traits of benignity. I have felt yearnings of tenderness towards some of these faces, or rather masks, that have looked out kindly upon one in casual encounters in the streets and highways.
      - Charles Lamb (used pseudonym Elia)

The negro is an exotic of the most gorgeous and superb countries of the world, and he has deep in his heart a passion for all that is splendid, rich, and fanciful; a passion which, rudely indulged by an untrained taste, draws on him the ridicule of the colder and more correct white race.
      - Harriet Elizabeth Beecher Stowe
