WILLIAM LLOYD GARRISON
American journalist and abolitionist
(1805 - 1879)

Enslave the liberty of but one human being and the liberties of the world are put in peril.
      - [Liberty]

Every mission constitutes a pledge of duty. Every man is bound to consecrate his every faculty to its fulfillment. He will derive his rule of action from the profound conviction of that duty.
      - [Duty]

It is for us to discharge the high duties that devolve on us, and carry our race onward. To be no better, no wiser, no greater than the past is to be little and foolish and bad; it is to misapply noble means, to sacrifice glorious opportunities for the performance of sublime deeds, to become cumberers of the ground.
      - [Progress]

Our country is the world--our countrymen are all mankind.
      - motto of the "Liberator" (1837-39)
        [Patriotism]

Resolved, That the compact which exists between the North and the South is a covenant with death and an agreement with hell; involving both parties in atrocious criminality, and should be immediately annulled.
      - adopted by the Massachusetts Anti-Slavery Society at Fanueil Hall
        [Slavery]

Where there is a human being, I see God-given rights inherent in that being, whatever may be the sex or complexion.
      - Life (vol. III, p. 390) [Rights]

I am in earnest--I will not equivocate--I will not excuse--I will not retreat a single inch and I will be heard.
      - Salutatory of the Liberator
         (vol. I, no. 1, Jan. 1, 1831)
        [Resolution]

I will be as harsh as truth and as uncompromising as justice.
      - Salutatory of the Liberator
         (vol. I, no. 1, Jan. 1, 1831)
        [Resolution]
