Slave quotes by Sue Monk Kidd
#1. How can you ask us to go back to our parlors?" I said, rising to my feet. "To turn our backs on ourselves and on our own sex? We don't wish the movement to split, of course we don't - it saddens me to think of it - but we can do little for the slave as long as we're under the feet of men. Do what you have to do, censure us, withdraw your support, we'll press on anyway. Now, sirs, kindly take your feet off our necks. #Quote by Sue Monk Kidd
Slave quotes by Richard Von Krafft-Ebing
#2. I have also fantasised myself to be his female slave, but this does not suffice, for after all every woman can be the slave of her husband. #Quote by Richard Von Krafft-Ebing
Slave quotes by C.S. Pacat
#3. Say it,' said Damen. 'I yield.' It was gritted out. Laurent's head turned away to one side. 'I want you to know,' he said, the words thick and heavy as they pushed out of him, 'that I could have done this any time when I was a slave. #Quote by C.S. Pacat
Slave quotes by Jean-Jacques Rousseau
#4. Christianity preaches only servitude and dependence. Its spirit is so favourable to tyranny that it always profits by such a régime. Genuine
Christians are made to be slaves, and they know it and don't much mind: this short life counts for too little in their eyes. #Quote by Jean-Jacques Rousseau
Slave quotes by Neal Shusterman
#5. Eventually your body will learn the alliances it has to make with itself,' Kenny had said - as if Cam was a factory full of strike-prone workers, or worse, a clutch of slaves forced into unwanted labor. #Quote by Neal Shusterman
Slave quotes by Malcolm X
#6. An integrated cup of coffee isn't sufficient pay for four hundred years of slave labor. #Quote by Malcolm X
Slave quotes by Sylvia Plath
#7. In Plaster

I shall never get out of this! There are two of me now:
This new absolutely white person and the old yellow one,
And the white person is certainly the superior one.
She doesn't need food, she is one of the real saints.

At the beginning I hated her, she had no personality --
She lay in bed with me like a dead body

And I was scared, because she was shaped just the way I was 

Only much whiter and unbreakable and with no complaints.
I couldn't sleep for a week, she was so cold.
I blamed her for everything, but she didn't answer.

I couldn't understand her stupid behavior!

When I hit her she held still, like a true pacifist.

Then I realized what she wanted was for me to love her:
She began to warm up, and I saw her advantages.

Without me, she wouldn't exist, so of course she was grateful.

I gave her a soul, I bloomed out of her as a rose

Blooms out of a vase of not very valuable porcelain,
And it was I who attracted everybody's attention,

Not her whiteness and beauty, as I had at first supposed.

I patronized her a little, and she lapped it up --

You could tell almost at once she had a slave mentality.

I didn't mind her waiting on me, and she adored it.

In the morning she woke me early, reflecting the sun

From her amazingly white torso, and I couldn't help but notice

Her tidiness and her calmness and her #Quote by Sylvia Plath
Slave quotes by Jonathan Haidt
#8. David Hume, who wrote in 1739 that "reason is, and ought only to be the slave of the passions, and can never pretend to any other office than to serve and obey them. #Quote by Jonathan Haidt
Slave quotes by Jean-Jacques Rousseau
#9. Christ preaches only servitude and dependence ... True Christians are made to be slaves. #Quote by Jean-Jacques Rousseau
Slave quotes by C.S. Lewis
#10. But one of the worst results of being a slave and being forced to do things is that when there is no one to force you any more you find you have almost lost the power of forcing yourself. #Quote by C.S. Lewis
Slave quotes by Peter Frankopan
#11. So widespread was slavery in the Mediterranean and the Arabic world that even today regular greetings reference human trafficking. All over Italy, when they meet, people say to each other, "schiavo," from a Venetian dialect. "Ciao," as it is more commonly spelt, does not mean "hello"; it means "I am your slave. #Quote by Peter Frankopan
Slave quotes by Henry Wiencek
#12. Many writers on slavery today have emphasized the "agency" of the enslaved people, insisting that we pay heed to the efforts of the slaves to resist their condition and assert their humanity under a dehumanizing system. But as slaves gain "agency" in historical analyses, the masters seem to lose it. As the slaves become heroic figures, triumphing over their condition, slave owners recede as historical actors and are replaced by a faceless system of "context" and "forces." So we end up with slavery somehow afloat in a world in which nobody is responsible. #Quote by Henry Wiencek
Slave quotes by Euripides
#13. No man on earth is truly free, All are slaves of money or necessity. Public opinion or fear of prosecution forces each one, against his conscience, to conform. #Quote by Euripides
Slave quotes by Albert Parsons
#14. Formerly the master selected the slave; today the slave selects his master. #Quote by Albert Parsons
Slave quotes by Charles Guggenheim
#15. I think he was explicit that it was a slave labor situation, but I was not alarmed at that point, because there were so many tragedies involved in that war. That was the first time I had any indication that something was sort of strange. #Quote by Charles Guggenheim
Slave quotes by Carol Berg
#16. From the instant of our first meeting I judged him so, though it could be said that I was prejudiced. When one is standing naked on a slave-auction block in a wind cold enough to freeze a demon's backside, one is unlikely to have a fair impression of anyone. #Quote by Carol Berg
Slave quotes by Joel Houston
#17. When we ignore the prostituted child, we actually lend our hand to their abuse. When we ignore the widow and the orphan in their distress, we actually add to their pain. When we ignore the slave who remains captive, it's us who is entrapping them. When we forget the refugee, it's actually us who is displacing them. When we choose not to help the poor and the needy, we actually rob them. Perhaps the only fair thing to say is that when we forsake the lives of others, we actually forsake our own. #Quote by Joel Houston
Slave quotes by John O'Sullivan
#18. To try is to risk failure. But risks need to be taken, because the greatest hazard in life is to risk nothing. The person who risks nothing, does nothing, has nothing and is nothing. They may avoid suffering and sorrow, but they cannot learn, feel change, grow, love and live. Chained by their certitudes, they are a slave; they have forfeited their freedom. Only a person who risks is free. - Leo Buscaglia #Quote by John O'Sullivan
Slave quotes by M.S. Willis
#19. She was a slave to his lust, while he was a slave to her pain. #Quote by M.S. Willis
Slave quotes by Joe Roman
#20. It may be underfunded and at times mismanaged, but the [Endangered Species] Act is an unprecedented attempt to delegate human-caused extinction to the chapters of history we would rather not revisit: the Slave Trade, the Indian Removal Policy, the subjection of women, child labor, segregation. The Endangered Species Act is a zero-tolerance law: no new extinctions. It keeps eyes on the ground with legal backing-the gun may be in the holster most of the time, but its available if necessary to keep species from disappearing. I discovered in my travels that a law protecting all animals and plants, all of nature, might be as revolutionary-and as American-as the Declaration of Independence. #Quote by Joe Roman
Slave quotes by Huey Newton
#21. Any unarmed people are slaves, or are subject to slavery at any given moment. #Quote by Huey Newton
Slave quotes by Saadi
#22. But for the cravings of the belly not a bird would have fallen into the snare; nay, nay, the fowler would not have spread his net. The belly is chains to the hands and fetters to the feet. He who is a slave to his belly seldom worships God. #Quote by Saadi
Slave quotes by Richelle E. Goodrich
#23. How does a tiny heart harbor so many clashing sentiments?
One moment it is devoted. The next, purely disdaining.
Weeping at tremendous heartache
and then laughing, lighthearted, through the same tears.
How can a heart rage so fierce as to boil blood while it turns to ice?

How is this done?

To love, hate, esteem, deride, rejoice, deplore, favor, resent -
all of these and more swirling inside.
This sensitive heart, so full and resilient, buoys up to the point of bursting
and then deflates on a dime; it is a slave to whims and whispers.
How is it that the human heart beats so wild and untamed? #Quote by Richelle E. Goodrich
Slave quotes by Abraham Lincoln
#24. In the first place, I insist that our fathers did not make this nation half slave and half free, or part slave and part free. I insist that they found the institution of slavery existing here. They did not make it so, but they left it so because they knew of no way to get rid of it at that time. #Quote by Abraham Lincoln
Slave quotes by Susanna Clarke
#25. I reached out my hand, England's rivers turned and flowed the other way...
I reached out my hand, my enemies's blood stopt in their veins...
I reached out my hand; thought and memory flew out of my enemies' heads like a flock of starlings;
My enemies crumpled like empty sacks.
I came to them out of mists and rain;
I came to them in dreams at midnight;
I came to them in a flock of ravens that filled a northern sky at dawn;
When they thought themselves safe I came to them in a cry that broke the silence of a winter wood...

The rain made a door for me and I went through it;
The stones made a throne for me and I sat upon it;
Three kingdoms were given to me to be mine forever;
England was given to me to be mine forever.
The nameless slave wore a silver crown;
The nameless slave was a king in a strange country...

The weapons that my enemies raised against me are venerated in Hell as holy relics;
Plans that my enemies made against me are preserved as holy texts;
Blood that I shed upon ancient battlefields is scraped from the stained earth by Hell's sacristans and placed in a vessel of silver and ivory.
I gave magic to England, a valuable inheritance
But Englishmen have despised my gift
Magic shall be written upon the sky by the rain but they shall not be able to read it;
Magic shall be written on the faces of the stony hills but their minds shall not be able to contain it; #Quote by Susanna Clarke
Slave quotes by Leon Trotsky
#26. Lenin refused to recognise moral norms established by slave-owners for their slaves and never observed by the slave-owners themselves; he called upon the Proletariat to extend the class struggle into the moral sphere too. Who fawns before the precepts established by the enemy will never vanquish that enemy! #Quote by Leon Trotsky
Slave quotes by Kanye West
#27. I wanna explain something about the title 'Yeezus', simply put 'West' was my slave name and 'Yeezus' is my God name. #Quote by Kanye West
Slave quotes by George R R Martin
#28. Who would attack Astapor?" Ser Jorah asked. "Meereen and Yunkai are rivals but not enemies, the Doom destroyed Valyria, the folk of the eastern hinterlands are all Ghiscari, and beyond the hills lies Lhazar. The Lamb Men, as your Dothraki call them, a notably unwarlike people." "Yes," she agreed, "but north of the slave cities is the Dothraki sea, and two dozen mighty khals who like nothing more than sacking cities and carrying off their people into slavery." "Carrying them off where? What good are slaves once you've killed the slavers? Valyria is no more, Qarth lies beyond the red waste, and the Nine Free Cities are thousands of leagues to the west. And you may be sure the sons of the harpy give lavishly #Quote by George R R Martin
Slave quotes by Born In Slavery: Slave Narratives From The Federal Writers Project
#29. I was owned by Johnson Bell and born in New Orleans, in Loisiana. Cordin to the bill of sale, I'm eighty-six years old, and my master was a Frenchman and was real mean to me. He ran saloon and kept bad women. I don't know nothing 'bout my folks, if I had any, 'crept my mama. They done tell me she was a bad woman and a French Creole.
I worked 'round master's saloon, kep everything cleaned up after they'd have all night drinkin' parties, men and women. #Quote by Born In Slavery: Slave Narratives From The Federal Writers Project
Slave quotes by Dan John
#30. Make yourself a slave to good habits #Quote by Dan John
Slave quotes by Orison Swett Marden
#31. Man becomes a slave to his constantly repeated acts. What he at first chooses, at last compels. #Quote by Orison Swett Marden
Slave quotes by Kristen Ciccarelli
#32. When she remained silent, the slave went back to work. He started humming the tune of a song only to stop, rearrange the notes, then sing them again in a different order. He did this over and over. Like he was testing the song and it kept failing him. Asha lay back, letting his voice distract her from the teeth-grinding pain of his needle sewing her up. A story rose to mind, unbidden. Rayan strode through his mother's orange grove and stopped sharp. Someone was singing. Someone with the voice of a nightingale. #Quote by Kristen Ciccarelli
Slave quotes by Wole Soyinka
#33. Under a dictatorship, a nation ceases to exist. All that remains is a fiefdom, a planet of slaves regimented by aliens from outer space. #Quote by Wole Soyinka
Slave quotes by Manisha Sinha
#34. Slave rebellions, especially the [1791] Haitian Revolution, had an ongoing effect on the ways in which abolitionists talked about ending slavery. #Quote by Manisha Sinha
Slave quotes by Ayn Rand
#35. In all proper relationships there is no sacrifice of anyone to anyone ... Men exchange their work by free, mutual consent to mutual advantage when their personal interests agree and they both desire the exchange. If they do not desire it, they are not forced to deal with each other. They seek further. This is the only possible form of relationship between equals. Anything else is a relation of slave to master, or victim to executioner. #Quote by Ayn Rand
Slave quotes by Sean Hannity
#36. Slave holding is very unusual among the English-speaking peoples. Canadians didn't do it. Australians didn't do it. The Democratic Party and the states they controlled did it! #Quote by Sean Hannity
Slave quotes by Solomon Northup
#37. Strange as it may seem, within plain sight of this same house, looking down from its commanding height upon it, was the Capitol. The voices of patriotic representatives boasting of freedom and equality, and the rattling of the poor slave's chains, almost commingled. A slave pen within the very shadow of the Capitol! #Quote by Solomon Northup
Slave quotes by Barbara W. Tuchman
#38. Was compared by Dante to both a slave and a brothel. #Quote by Barbara W. Tuchman
Slave quotes by Mary Shelley
#39. The possessions most esteemed by your fellow-creatures were high and unsullied descent united with riches. A man might be respected with only one of these advantages; but, without either, he was considered, except in very rare instances, as a vagabond and a slave, doomed to waste his powers for the profits of the chosen few! #Quote by Mary Shelley
Slave quotes by Louis Sullivan
#40. The feudal concept of self-preservation is poisoned at the core by the virulent assumption of master and man, of potentate and slave, of external and internal suppression of the life urge of the only one - of its faith in human sacrifice as a means of salvation. #Quote by Louis Sullivan
Slave quotes by Amy Bloom
#41. The German deli was run by a distant cousin of Kaiser Wilhelm and the Great Neck Jews loved the place; they flocked to Kuch's. They said to one another, What a character he is, Otto, strictly old country, I'm telling you. Gus didn't think that Negroes would rush to shop in a store run by some retired slave owner, eager to share memories of fun times on the plantation, praising Massa's old-fashioned Mississippi charm. Jews were still chasing that absurd, wishful feather. Eventually, Jews would become like everybody else. They'd elevate small grievances; they'd cherish hurt feelings and ill treatment like they were signs of virtue. #Quote by Amy Bloom
Slave quotes by L. Ron Hubbard
#42. All men shall be my slaves! All women shall succumb to my charms! All mankind shall grovel at my feet and not know why! #Quote by L. Ron Hubbard
Slave quotes by Wendell Berry
#43. From other stories that have been handed down to me I know that my people, like many others in the slave states, went to church with their slaves, were baptized with them, and presumably expected to associate with them in heaven. Again, I have been years realizing what this means, and what it has cost.

First, consider the moral predicament of the master who sat in church with his slaves, thus attesting his belief in the immortality of the souls of people whose bodies he owned and used. He thus placed his body, if not his mind, at the very crux of the deepest contradiction of his life. How could he presume to own the body of a man whose soul he considered as worthy of salvation as his own? To keep this question from articulating itself in his thoughts and demanding an answer, he had to perfect an empty space in his mind, a silence, between heavenly concerns and earthly concerns, between body and spirit. If there had ever opened a conscious connection between the two claims, if the two sides of his mind had ever touched, it would have been like building a fire in a house full of gunpowder: somewhere down deep in his mind he always knew of the danger, and his nerves were always alert to it. #Quote by Wendell Berry
Slave quotes by Frederick Lenz
#44. Stop trying to do things that will make you happy. Happiness is a state of mind; because otherwise, you are a slave to circumstance. #Quote by Frederick Lenz
Slave quotes by Will Durant
#45. He is never fired with admiration, since there is nothing great in his eyes. He cannot live in complaisance with others, except it be a friend; complaisance is the characteristic of a slave . . . . #Quote by Will Durant
Slave quotes by Ignatius Of The Side Of Jesus Passionist
#46. Jesus allows Himself to be bound, because His bonds are to break the chains of our sins. Jesus becomes a slave for our sakes, through the excess of His charity alone, to free our souls from the slavery of the devil. Offer yourself to Him now, to be entirely His, beseeching Him to bind you fast with the sweet chains of His love. #Quote by Ignatius Of The Side Of Jesus Passionist
Slave quotes by Truth Devour
#47. You are the master of my heart. I am a slave to you're soul. Intertwined in a perfect embrace that I will never release myself from. #Quote by Truth Devour
Slave quotes by Tanya R. Taylor
#48. Being a slave to a fellow human being, many times, starts with giving his opinion more weight than you should. #Quote by Tanya R. Taylor
Slave quotes by Patrick Henry
#49. I believe a time will come when an opportunity will be offered to abolish this lamentable evil. #Quote by Patrick Henry
Slave quotes by Lalita Tademy
#50. This was the face of slavery. To have nothing, and still have something more to lose. #Quote by Lalita Tademy
Slave quotes by Benjamin Disraeli
#51. The most powerful men are not public men: a public man is responsible, and a responsible man is a slave. It is private life that governs the world. #Quote by Benjamin Disraeli
Slave quotes by Toni Morrison
#52. Risky, thought Paul D, very risky. For a used-to-be-slave woman to love anything that much was dangerous, especially if it was her children she had settled on to love. The best thing, he knew, was to love just a little bit, so when they broke its back, or shoved it in a croaker sack, well, maybe you'd have a little love left over for the next one. #Quote by Toni Morrison
Slave quotes by Orison Swett Marden
#53. Where did the idea come from that we should take life so seriously, anyway? Why should a man be such a slave to his breadwinning? We ought to be able to get a good living, even to make fortunes, and yet have a good time every day of our lives. This idea of being a slave most of the time, and of only occasionally enjoying a holiday, is all wrong. #Quote by Orison Swett Marden
Slave quotes by Epictetus
#54. It is possible to learn the will of nature from the things in which we do not differ from each other. For example, when someone else's little slave boy breaks his cup we are ready to say, "It's one of those things that just happen." Certainly, then, when your own cup is broken you should be just the way you were when the other person's was broken. Transfer the same idea to larger matters. Someone else's child is dead, or his wife. There is no one would not say, "It's the lot of a human being." But when one's own dies, immediately it is, "Alas! Poor me!" But we should have remembered how we feel when we hear of the same thing about others. #Quote by Epictetus
Slave quotes by Tessanne Chin
#55. What I love about Beyonce is she's not a slave to a genre of music. #Quote by Tessanne Chin
Slave quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson
#56. Be not the slave of your own past - plunge into the sublime seas, dive deep, and swim far, so you shall come back with new self-respect, with new power, and with an advanced experience that shall explain and overlook the old. #Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson
Slave quotes by M. Scott Peck
#57. Yet the opposite style of leadership, which the guilt-ridden neurotic so often exerts over his feelings, is equally self-destructive. In this style the slave-owner is so obsessed with the fear that his slaves (feelings) might get out of control and so determined that they should cause him no trouble that he routinely beats them into submission and punishes them severely at the #Quote by M. Scott Peck
Slave quotes by Dream Hampton
#58. Boss up on your emotions before you become a slave to them. #Quote by Dream Hampton
Slave quotes by Nan Shepherd
#59. Am I such a slave as that? Dependent on a man to complete me! I thought I couldn't be anything without him- I can be my own creator! #Quote by Nan Shepherd
Slave quotes by Susan Ee
#60. We haven't been strangers since I pulled you out of the slave quarters to train you as a soldier. #Quote by Susan Ee
Slave quotes by Marcus Aurelius
#61. How do we know that Telauges wasn't a better man than Socrates? It's not enough to ask whether Socrates' death was nobler, whether he debated with the sophists more adeptly, whether he showed greater endurance by spending the night out in the cold, and when he was ordered to arrest the man from Salamis decided it was preferable to refuse, and "swaggered about the streets" (which one could reasonably doubt). What matters is what kind of soul he had. Whether he was satisfied to treat men with justice and the gods with reverence and didn't lose his temper unpredictably at evil done by others, didn't make himself the slave of other people's ignorance, didn't treat anything that nature did as abnormal, or put up with it as an unbearable imposition, didn't put his mind in his body's keeping. #Quote by Marcus Aurelius
Slave quotes by Lysander Spooner
#62. A man who is without capital, and who, by prohibitions upon banking, is practically forbidden to hire any, is in a condition elevated but one degree above that of a chattel slave. He may live; but he can live only as the servant of others; compelled to perform such labor, and to perform it at such prices, as they may see fit to dictate. #Quote by Lysander Spooner
Slave quotes by Janelle Monae
#63. I will not be a slave to my image, nor will I be a slave to anyone else's interpretations of me, #Quote by Janelle Monae
Slave quotes by Susie Larson
#64. Imagine yourself in Harriet Tubman's shoes. Fighting to be freed from deplorable conditions. Placing one foot in front of the other, putting slavery behind you. If a petite, abused slave can rise up, fight for freedom, secure the freedom of others, and change her world, so can I. And so can you. #Quote by Susie Larson
Slave quotes by George S. Clason
#65. I looked across into the uninviting distance and once again came to me the question, 'Have I the soul of a slave or the soul of a free man?' Then with clearness I realized that if I had the soul of a slave, I should give up, lie down in the desert and die, a fitting end for a runaway slave. "But if I had the soul of a free man, what then? Surely I would force my way back to Babylon, repay the people who had trusted me, bring happiness to my wife who had cared for me, bring peace and contentment to my parents. #Quote by George S. Clason
Slave quotes by Vern Sheridan Poythress
#66. The person who goes astray from God's wise guidance burdens himself with sorrows and frustrations. In fact, he ends up being a slave to his own desires. #Quote by Vern Sheridan Poythress
Slave quotes by Plato
#67. Because a freeman ought not to be a slave in the acquisition of knowledge of any kind. Bodily exercise, when compulsory, does no harm to the body; but knowledge which is acquired under compulsion obtains no hold on the mind. Very true. Then, #Quote by Plato
Slave quotes by Wayne Dyer
#68. If you are living out of a sense of obligation you are slave. #Quote by Wayne Dyer
Slave quotes by Liam Payne
#70. I would make Harry my personal slave and would make him drive me places. #Quote by Liam Payne
Slave quotes by Bertrand Russell
#71. The conception of duty, speaking historically, has been a means used by the holders of power to induce others to live for the interests of their masters rather than for their own. Of course the holders of power conceal this fact from themselves by managing to believe that their interests are identical with the larger interests of humanity. Sometimes this is true; Athenian slave owners, for instance, employed part of their leisure in making a permanent contribution to civilization which would have been impossible under a just economic system. Leisure is essential to civilization, and in former times leisure for the few was only rendered possible by the labors of the many. But their labors were valuable, not because work is good, but because leisure is good. And #Quote by Bertrand Russell
Slave quotes by Aldous Huxley
#72. Take one sexually inept wage-slave,'" she went on, "'one dissatisfied female, two or (if preferred) three small television-addicts; marinate in a mixture of Freudism and dilute Christianity; then bottle up tightly in a four-room flat and stew for fifteen years in their own juice. #Quote by Aldous Huxley
Slave quotes by Abraham Lincoln
#73. Free labor has the inspiration of hope; pure slavery has no hope. #Quote by Abraham Lincoln
Slave quotes by Alice Oswald
#74. I think it is the easiest mentality for a human being to be either colonized or to colonize. The structure of either the slave or the master seems to be the simplest and the most relaxing one to slip into. Either you are a slave, and you don't have to think for yourself, or you're a master, and you don't have to work for yourself. #Quote by Alice Oswald
Slave quotes by Johnny Stone
#75. I was a slave long before meeting the Master, but then again we all are, every man woman and child whether they realize it or not. I was a slave to the conforming ritual of proper society my parents tried to chain me down with. I was a slave to the wheels of the machine, going through life obliviously with the drudgery of paychecks and stoplights guiding my actions. I was a slave to my own ignorance of self-restraint and foolish delusions, while my body sought the intangible freedom of something that dwelt in the world of shadows. But more importantly, I was a slave to the fear of humiliation and cultural prosecution from people that would never understand the joy I now feel. #Quote by Johnny Stone
Slave quotes by Stasia Ward Kehoe
#76. Let's give our slave a big dream. A big future. #Quote by Stasia Ward Kehoe
Slave quotes by SK

Slave quotes by Lupita Nyong'o
#78. All throughout filming '12 Years a Slave,' there was a focus like no other. Everyone took ownership of this film and gave their all. #Quote by Lupita Nyong'o
Slave quotes by Assata Shakur
#79. I am a 20th century escaped slave. Because of government persecution, I was left with no other choice than to flee from the political repression, racism and violence that dominate the U.S. government's policy towards people of color. #Quote by Assata Shakur
Slave quotes by R.K. Lilley
#80. Love is never satisfied with half-measures. It won't take parts of you. It will own all of you, every single, longing piece. "Love will make you its slave," I stated venomously. "It will ruin you. Grind you under its heel until you don't recognize what's left. "Love will take your soul. #Quote by R.K. Lilley
Slave quotes by B.C. Forbes
#81. He is a wise man who seeks by every legitimate means to make all the money he can honestly, for money can do so many worthwhile things in this world, not merely for one's self but for others. But he is an unmitigated fool who imagines for a moment that it is more important to make the money than to make it honestly. One of the advantages of possessing money is that it facilitates one's independence and mental attitude. The man head over heels in debt is more slave than independent. #Quote by B.C. Forbes
Slave quotes by Jeanette Winterson
#82. I can't do it. I've been here before and it's not a room with a view. The only power I have is the negative power of withdrawal. If I don't withdraw I have no power at all. A relationship where one person has no power or negative power, isn't a relationship, it's the bond between master and slave. #Quote by Jeanette Winterson
Slave quotes by Matt Chandler
#83. If you're not confident in the authority of the Scriptures, you will be a slave to what sounds right. #Quote by Matt Chandler
Slave quotes by Mark Twain
#84. Man is the only slave. And he is the only animal who enslaves. He has always been a slave in one form or another, and has always held other slaves in bondage under him in one way or another. In our day, he is always some man's slave for wages, and does that man's work; and this slave has other slaves under him for minor wages, and they do his work. The higher animals are the only ones who exclusively do their own work and provide their own living. #Quote by Mark Twain
Slave quotes by Allyson James
#85. With effort, Nella shoved the vision aside. "Never." She drew herself up. "I am a princess of Ariel. I would never - "
"Yes, you would. You will. But I'm glad to hear you get mad at me. That means whoever is chasing you, whoever is trying to make you his slave didn't break you. You're whole and strong."
"Then why do you want to break me?"
"I don't." Rio stepped closer to her. "I want you to submit to me."
"What is the difference?"
"There's a big difference. Submission is complete trust. It's giving yourself and your pleasure to the hands of your lover. You'll free yourself, and give yourself entirely to me."
"If it is so freeing, why do you not submit yourself?"
Rio laughed, a sound so filled with mirth it made her want to smile along. "Tell you what, beautiful. You submit wholly and completely to me - let me train you to be my sub - then I'll submit to you."
Nella gave him a suspicious look. "Would you?"
"I never go back on my word, sweetheart. We'll get Rees to help out if you don't believe me. He'd be happy to chain me up, although not for the same reasons. He thinks I'm a pain in the ass. #Quote by Allyson James
Slave quotes by Gerry Spence
#86. In America, we have achieved the Orwellian prediction - enslaved, the people have been programmed to love their bondage and are left to clutch only mirage-like images of freedom, its fables and fictions. The new slaves are linked together by vast electronic chains of television that imprison not their bodies but their minds. Their desires are programmed, their tastes manipulated, their values set for them. #Quote by Gerry Spence
Slave quotes by D.R. Silva
#87. Telling people they don't have a sin nature doesn't promote sin anymore than telling a slave they are free promotes slavery. #Quote by D.R. Silva
Slave quotes by J.D. Vance
#88. There is an ethnic component lurking in the background of my story. In our race-conscious society, our vocabulary often extends no further than the color of someone's skin - black people, Asians, white privilege. Sometimes these broad categories are useful. But to understand my story, you have to delve into the details.I may be white, but I do not identify with the WASPs of the Northeast. Instead, I identify with the millions of working-class white Americans of Scots-Irish descent who have no college degree. To these folks, poverty's the family tradition. Their ancestors were day laborers in the southern slave economy, sharecroppers after that, coal miners after that, and machinists and mill workers during more recent times. Americans call them hillbillies, rednecks or white trash. I call them neighbors, friends and family. #Quote by J.D. Vance
Slave quotes by Charlotte Eriksson
#89. I am not a Sunday morning inside four walls
with clean blood
and organized drawers.
I am the hurricane setting fire to the forests
at night when no one else is alive
or awake
however you choose to see it
and I live in my own flames
sometimes burning too bright and too wild
to make things last
or handle
myself or anyone else
and so I run.
run run run
far and wide
until my bones ache and lungs split
and it feels good.
Hear that people? It feels good
because I am the slave and ruler of my own body
and I wish to do with it exactly as I please #Quote by Charlotte Eriksson
Slave quotes by Ben Sasse
#90. If a free people is going to be reproduced, it will require watering and revivifying and owning anew older traditions and awaking the curiosity in the soul of each citizen. National greatness will not be recovered via a mindless expansion of bureaucratized schooling. Seventy years ago, Dorothy Sayers wrote, 'Sure, we demand another grant of money, we postpone the school leaving age and plan to build bigger and better schools. We demand that teachers further slave conscientiously in and out of school hours. But to what end? I believe,' Sayers lamented, 'all this devoted effort is largely frustrated because we have no definable goal for each child to become a fully formed adult. We have lost the tools of learning, sacrificing them to the piecemeal, subject matter approach of bureaucratized schooling that finally compromises to produce passive rather than active emerging adults. But our kids are not commodities, they are plants. They require a protected environment, and care, and feeding, but most basically, an internal yearning to grow toward the sunlight. What we need is the equipping of each child with those lost tools. #Quote by Ben Sasse
Slave quotes by George Bernard Shaw
#91. When the master has come to do everything through the slave, the slave becomes his master, since he cannot live without him. #Quote by George Bernard Shaw
Slave quotes by Manu Herbstein
#92. I am a human being; I am a woman; I am a black woman; I am an African. Once I was free; then I was captured and became a slave; but inside me, I have never been a slave; even today, inside me, here, and here, I am still a free woman. #Quote by Manu Herbstein
Slave quotes by Lysander Spooner
#93. The commerce of a free people is many times more valuable than that of slaves. Freemen produce and consume vastly more than slaves. They have therefore more to buy and more to sell. Hence the free states have a direct pecuniary interest in the civil freedom of all the other states. Commerce between free and slave states is not reciprocal or equal. #Quote by Lysander Spooner
Slave quotes by Marcia Sa Cavalcante Schuback
#94. Man is compelled to compel beings to his control, and thus he becomes a slave of his will to control, a slave of his own rights. Individuals become so individualistic that they become nothing more than a lonely crowd. #Quote by Marcia Sa Cavalcante Schuback
Slave quotes by Derrick Jensen
#95. Slavery was a central concern of governance form the time of the first nation-state. The Code of Hammurabi, the earliest know set of laws for governing an empire, prescribed death for anyone who harbored a fugitive or otherwise helped a slave to escape. The relationship between the law and bondage goes back even farther: Indeed, the oldest extant legal documents don't concern the sale of land, houses, or even animals, but slaves. #Quote by Derrick Jensen
Slave quotes by C.S. Pacat
#96. You weren't making love to a slave, you were making love to me.' And he couldn't think that through clearly but he could catch a glimmer of it, a glimmer of the edge of it. 'I thought you wouldn't, I thought you'd never - ' He took a step forward. #Quote by C.S. Pacat
Slave quotes by Rajneesh
#97. But people try love and because they are unconscious ... their longing is good, but their love is full of jealousy, full of possessiveness, full of anger, full of nastiness. Soon they destroy it. Hence for centuries they have depended on marriage. Better to start by marriage so that the law can protect you from destroying it. The society, the government, the court, the policeman, the priest, they will all force you to live in the institution of marriage, and you will be just a slave. If marriage is an institution, you are going to be a slave in it. Only slaves want to live in institutions. #Quote by Rajneesh
Slave quotes by Walter Scott
#98. No word of commiseration can make a burden feel one feather's weight lighter to the slave who must carry it. #Quote by Walter Scott
Slave quotes by Francis Quarles
#99. Make thy recreation servant to thy business, lest thou become a slave to thy recreation. #Quote by Francis Quarles
Slave quotes by African Spir
#100. Outward, thanks to the knowledge of physical laws, man could subdue (or subjugate ... ) nature, but inwardly, he remained a slave to it. For, when all is said and done, at what is aiming all this display (or deployment) of activity, if not to realized outward profits, to provide material pleasure (or enjoyment). It is not the first time that men sell their birth right for a dish of lentils, and thus disown (or repudiate or deny) the best of thmeselves. #Quote by African Spir

Slave quotes by Vic James
#102. But when he'd run into the boy again several weeks later, he'd had some kind of attitude transplant. The kid had looked at Gavar like he'd not only bailed him from Millmoor but had driven the van himself, then thrown a "Welcome to Kyneston" party complete with strippers. He'd offered some unfeigned thanks, and said that if there was ever anything he could do for Gavar, he would. "Anything at all," he'd said expansively. As if there were plenty of things the heir of Kyneston might need that a seventeen-year-old slave could supply. #Quote by Vic James
Slave quotes by Horace
#103. Everything, virtue, glory, honor, things human and divine, all are slaves to riches. #Quote by Horace
Slave quotes by Pythagoras
#104. Some are slaves of ambition or money, but others are interested in understanding life itself. These give themselves the name of philosophers , and they value the contemplation and discovery of nature beyond all other pursuits. #Quote by Pythagoras
Slave quotes by Epictetus
#105. It is the nature of the wise to resist pleasures, but the foolish to be a slave to them. #Quote by Epictetus
Slave quotes by Max Barry

Slave quotes by H.L. Mencken
#107. I believe that any man who takes the liberty of another into his keeping is bound to become a tyrant, and that any man who yields up his liberty, in however slight the measure, is bound to become a slave. #Quote by H.L. Mencken
Slave quotes by Leo Tolstoy

Slave quotes by Aiden Wilson Tozer

Slave quotes by Nikki Giovanni
#112. If you're creating a slave situation, you would almost never bring women. And if we look at Slavery for example, we look at the Greeks and the Romans, right? It was always men. They never brought any women. Because women carry the seeds of the revolution, right? And if you have the men by themselves, then you can do what the French did with the Blackfeet, which is breed them out. #Quote by Nikki Giovanni
Slave quotes by Emile Coue

Slave quotes by H.L. Mencken
#114. Setting aside the vast herd which shows no definable character at all, it seems to me that the minority distinguished by what is commonly regarded as an excess of sin is very much more admirable than the minority distinguished by an excess of virtue. My experience of the world has taught me that the average wine-bibbler is a far better fellow than the average prohibitionist, and that the average rogue is better company than the average poor drudge, and that the worst white-slave trader of my acquaintance is a decenter man than the best vice crusader. #Quote by H.L. Mencken

Slave quotes by Anna Carey
#116. Almost two hundred years ago, Harriet Tubman led slaves to freedom. And when they told her they didn't think they could, when they said they were too afraid, she pointed a gun at them and said" - Marjorie mimed a weapon in her grasp - "Go forward or die. #Quote by Anna Carey
Slave quotes by Gunter Grass
#117. Grownups have it in them to be creative, and sometimes, with the help of ambition, hard work, and a bit of luck they actually are, but being grownups, they have no sooner created some epoch-making invention than they become a slave to it. #Quote by Gunter Grass
Slave quotes by Mark Mirabello
#118. In modern states, the citizen is politically impotent. A citizen, it is true, may complain, make suggestions, or cause disruptions, but in the ancient world these were privileges that belonged to any slave. #Quote by Mark Mirabello
Slave quotes by George Orwell
#119. Looking at the world as a whole, the drift for many decades has been not towards anarchy but towards the reimposition of slavery. We may be heading not for general breakdown but for an epoch as horribly stable as the slave empires of antiquity. #Quote by George Orwell
Slave quotes by Francine Rivers
#120. These conquerors of the world are slaves to their passions, and someday their passions will bring them down. #Quote by Francine Rivers
Slave quotes by Colson Whitehead
#121. It was nigh impossible to understand Howard's speech under normal circumstances. He favored a pidgin of his lost African tongue and slave talk. In the old days, her mother had told her, that half language was the voice of the plantation. They had been stolen from villages all over Africa and spoke a multitude of tongues. The words from across the ocean were beaten out of them over time. For simplicity, to erase their identities, to smother uprisings. All the words except for the ones locked away by those who still remembered who they had been before. "They keep 'em hid like precious gold," Mabel said. #Quote by Colson Whitehead
Slave quotes by Charles Darwin
#122. Animals, whom we have made our slaves, we do not like to consider our equal. #Quote by Charles Darwin
Slave quotes by Stendhal
#123. Punish me for my atrocious pride," she said to him, squeezing him in her arms as though to strangle him; "you are my master, I am your slave, I must beg pardon upon my knees for having sought to rebel." She slipped from his embrace to fall at his feet. "Yes, you are my master," she said again, intoxicated with love and joy; "reign over me for ever, punish your slave severely when she seeks to rebel. #Quote by Stendhal

Slave quotes by Martha Medeiros
#125. You start dying slowly
if you do not travel,
if you do not read,
If you do not listen to the sounds of life,
If you do not appreciate yourself.

You start dying slowly
When you kill your self-esteem;
When you do not let others help you.

You start dying slowly
If you become a slave of your habits,
Walking everyday on the same paths…
If you do not change your routine,
If you do not wear different colours
Or you do not speak to those you don't know.

You start dying slowly
If you avoid to feel passion
And their turbulent emotions;
Those which make your eyes glisten
And your heart beat fast.

You start dying slowly
If you do not change your life when you are not satisfied with your job, or with your love,
If you do not risk what is safe for the uncertain,
If you do not go after a dream,
If you do not allow yourself,
At least once in your lifetime,
To run away from sensible advice. #Quote by Martha Medeiros
Slave quotes by Lord Byron
#126. I am the very slave of circumstance And impulse borne away with every breath! Misplaced upon the throne misplaced in life. I know not what I could have been, but feel I am not what I should be let it end. #Quote by Lord Byron
Slave quotes by Alexis De Tocqueville
#127. Every nation that has ended in tyranny has come to that end by way of good order. It certainly does not follow from this that peoples should scorn public peace, but neither should they be satisfied with that and nothing more. A nation that asks nothing of government but the maintenance of order is already a slave in the depths of its heart; it is a slave of its well-being, ready for the man who will put it in chains. #Quote by Alexis De Tocqueville
Slave quotes by Swami Vivekananda
#128. Just as I sit down to meditate, all the vilest subjects in the world come up. The whole thing is nauseating. Why should the mind think thoughts I do not want it to think? I am as it were a slave to the mind. #Quote by Swami Vivekananda
Slave quotes by Herbert Read

Slave quotes by Rachael Wade
#130. I looked around the room, at everyone who inhabited the space, person and monster, slave and master, aware we were in the madness together, swirling around in the same mess, all out to get something, a piece of our own pie. But I knew that in the midst of that noxious stew, coming to terms with our poisons was only the beginning.
Ever forward, Cecile's voice replayed in my mind. Ever forward. #Quote by Rachael Wade
Slave quotes by Alex Haley
#131. It's always intrigued me that amidst the group called slaves there were individuals who were extremely able, who were extremely colorful, who were powerful personalities, who by no means fit the usual images of slaves. They were people who, through their personalities and abilities, were very respected in the community where they lived by both black and white. #Quote by Alex Haley
Slave quotes by Les Martin
#132. Tell me, have you done much circus work in your life?' [asked Mulder].
Nutt drew himself up to his full height. 'And what makes you think I've ever even gone to a circus, let alone been a slave in one?' he demanded ...
Finally Mulder managed to say, 'I didn't mean any offense.'
'Offended? Why should I be offended?' Nutt demanded. 'It's human nature to make quick judgements of people based only on their looks. Why, I have done the same thing to you.'
'Have you?' said Mulder. 'And what have you concluded?'
'I have taken in your all-American face, your unsmiling expression, your boring necktie. I have decided you work for the government,' Nutt said. 'You are- an FBI agent.'
'Am I really?' Mulder said.
'I hope you get my point,' Nutt said. 'I want to show how stupid it would be to look at you as a type, rather than as an individual.'
'But I am an FBI agent,' Mulder said, showing Nutt his badge.
There was a loud silence.
Then Nutt said, 'Sign the book please. #Quote by Les Martin
Slave quotes by Herman Melville

Slave quotes by Ice Cube
#134. The devil made you a slave. Your waitin' for the devil to come from the ground. Take a look around. Just look at the cross that the priest is holdin'. A beast, in sheep's clothin'. You are the prince of darkness. Hell born, demonic. #Quote by Ice Cube

Slave quotes by Jesse J. Holland
#136. Slave owner Edmund Plowden, who lived in what is now St. Mary's County, Maryland, owned sixty-four slaves and rented out three men - Gerard, Tony, and Jack - to work at the Capitol. Although Plowden did not lift a single stone or cut down a single tree, he made $15 a month off of the Capitol construction. He was only required to provide his slaves with a blanket. #Quote by Jesse J. Holland

Slave quotes by Willis Carto
#138. The nationalist, however loves his own kind as the extension of his family, realizing that universal values are primitive values or no values at all; that men can be free and content only within their native cultural environment. This profound insight completely escapes the immature internationalists. The nationalist seeks peace - not the peace of the pacifist or the slave but the peace of the free and independent. He believes in nonaggression, nonintervention and neutrality whereas the internationalist sees every dispute anywhere in the world as an excuse for the raising of an army, the floating of a bond issue and the raising of taxes - letting the suckers, of course, do the fighting, the buying of bonds and the paying of taxes. Nationalism is the only sane approach to the problem of world
peace in an increasingly crazy and dangerous world. It is the spirit
of live and let live, the healthy ethic of self-respect, racial integrity
and conscientious concern for the rights of others. #Quote by Willis Carto
Slave quotes by Erica Jong
#139. We assent to wifedom because we are so used to having someone to blame and so unused to freedom. We prefer self-punishment to the conquest of our fears. We prefer our anger to our freedom.
If women were totally conscious of the part of themselves that gives away power to men, the prediction of victory might prove true. But we are far from this self-knowledge. And we move further and further away as we retreat from the psychoanalytic model of the self. As long as we disclaim the importance of unconscious motivations, of the existence of the unconscious itself, we cannot root out the slave in ourselves. Freedom is hand to love. Freedom takes away all the excuses. #Quote by Erica Jong

Slave quotes by Kevin Hart
#142. I think the whole stigma of 'black movies' is slowly being lost. When you look at movies like '12 Years A Slave,' to 'The Butler,' to 'The Best Man,' to 'Ride Along,' to even 'Think Like a Man' from last year - these movies are just good movies. #Quote by Kevin Hart
Slave quotes by Henry Calvert Simons
#143. Private property in the instruments of production is an institutional device both for dispersing power and for securing effective organization of production. The only simple property system is that of a slave society with a single slave owner - which, significantly, is the limiting case of despotism and of monopoly. Departure from such a system is a fair measure of human progress. #Quote by Henry Calvert Simons
Slave quotes by David Brion Davis
#144. It was the mission of the Confederacy, ordinary whites were told, to carry out God's design for an inferior and dependent race. Slaveholders claimed that owning slaves always entailed a duty and a burden - a duty and burden that defined the moral superiority of the South. And this duty and burden was respected by millions of nonslaveholding whites, who were prepared to defend it with their lives. That, perhaps, was the ultimate meaning of a slave society. #Quote by David Brion Davis
Slave quotes by Albert Camus
#145. That is the answer to the question which is always being asked: why has
the revolutionary movement identified itself with materialism rather than with idealism? Because to
conquer God, to make Him a slave, amounts to abolishing the transcendence that kept the former masters
in power and to preparing, with the ascendancy of the new tyrants, the advent of the man-king. When
poverty is abolished, when the contradictions of history are resolved, "the real god, the human god, will
be the State." Then homo homini lupus becomes homo homini deus. This concept is at the root of the
contemporary world. #Quote by Albert Camus
Slave quotes by Diogenes Of Sinope

Slave quotes by Thomas Jefferson
#147. The whole commerce between master and slave is a perpetual exercise of the most boisterous passions, the most unremitting despotism on the one part, and degrading subjugation on the other. Our children see this, and learn to imitate it: for man is an imitative animal. #Quote by Thomas Jefferson
Slave quotes by Fyodor Dostoyevsky

Slave quotes by George Bernard Shaw
#149. Ye poor posterity, think not that ye are the first. Other fools before ye have seen the sun rise and set, and the moon change her shape and her hour. As they were so ye are; and yet not so great; for the pyramids my people built stand to this day; whilst the dustheaps on which ye slave, and which ye call empires, scatter in the wind even as ye pile your dead sons' bodies on them to make yet more dust. #Quote by George Bernard Shaw
Slave quotes by George Gordon Byron
#150. Where yet my boys are, and that fatal She,
Their mother, the cold partner who hath brought
Destruction for a dowry - this to see
And feel, and know without repair, hath taught
A bitter lesson; but it leaves me free:
I have not vilely found, nor basely sought,
They made an Exile - not a Slave of me. #Quote by George Gordon Byron
Slave quotes by Chauncey L. Canfield
#151. I would like to have enough capital so that I would not have to slave from sunrise till dark as I did on dad's farm. I don't know as the work was any harder than what we do here, but there is a difference. There all we got was just about a bare living, at the best a few hundred dollars put away for a year's work, but here one don't know what the next stroke of the pick, or the next rocker full of dirt, may bring forth - an ounce or twenty ounces it may be. That is the excitement and fascination that makes one endure the hardships, working up to one's knees in cold water, breaking one's back in gouging and crevicing, the chance that the next panful will indicate the finding of a big deposit. #Quote by Chauncey L. Canfield
Slave quotes by Tom Morello

Slave quotes by Susan Griffin
#154. Just as the slave master required the slaves to imitate the image he had of them, so women, who live in a relatively powerless position, politically and economically, feel obliged by a kind of implicit force to live up to culture's image of what is female. #Quote by Susan Griffin

Slave quotes by Angela Flournoy
#160. Slavery. Did there ever exist a more annoying way to try to make a modern-day black man feel like his troubles were insignificant, that he should be satisfied with the sorry hand society dealt him? Cha-Cha thought not. The line of reasoning was faulty; it was precisely because his grandfather's father was born a slave that he should expect more from life, and more from this country, to make up for lost time at the very least.

Slave quotes by Samuel Fort
#165. Only the guiding hand of the true and uncorrupted Nisirtu has allowed humanity to progress to its current state. The human cesspool in this country idle away their time texting or emailing or calling one another on their shiny toys to babble incessantly about every second of their miserable, directionless lives. It is like the grunting of pigs in pens. They send endless streams of photos of themselves to their slave friends. And do you know why they do this? Because their lives have so little meaning that they secretly wonder if they even exist. #Quote by Samuel Fort
Slave quotes by Sirshree
If you are scared of taking responsibilities, you will remain a slave for life. The greatest loss of not taking responsibility is losing your freedom. #Quote by Sirshree
Slave quotes by Mango Wodzak
#167. Animal welfarism is a blatant lie. Anyone who truly cares for the welfare of another, would never dream of exploiting them. For just as when slavery is deeply set into the psyche of a nation, those crying for slave welfare and not abolitionism, argue in favour of slavery and exploitation, and thus push eventual abolitionism further into the future. #Quote by Mango Wodzak

Slave quotes by Konnie Huq
#169. I had a Saturday job in a chemist. The pay was something ridiculous like £2 an hour - it was slave labour - and I spent all day cleaning shelves. On my first day an actress from Eldorado, which was on telly at the time, came in and said, 'Can I have some Replense please?' I didn't know what it was, so I had to ask her and she had to say, 'It's vaginal moisturiser,' in front of a massive queue of people. After one day I was like, 'I don't want to do this job any more, it's just boring.' #Quote by Konnie Huq
Slave quotes by Heather Graham
#170. He says that he saw you first. That by right, you are his captive. He says that Buffalo Run really has no right to you, that he has pampered you, that he has scorned the Comanche ways. He says that you should be his slave, and that he intends to take you. #Quote by Heather Graham
Slave quotes by Marie Rutkoski
#171. He is a slave."
"He is a man, as I am."
Kestrel slipped from her saddle, stood face-to-face with Ronan, and lied. "He is nothing to me."
Ronan's anger dimmed a little. He waited, listening.
"I never should have challenged Irex." Kestrel decided to weave some truth into her story, to toughen the fabric of it. "But he and I have an unfriendly history. He made me an offer last spring. I turned him down. Since then, he has been…aggressive."
She had Ronan's sympathy then, and she was grateful, for she didn't know what she would do if he and Jess turned their backs on her. She needed them--not only today, but always.
"Irex angered me. The slave was just an excuse." How much easier everything would be if that were so. But Kestrel wouldn't let herself consider the truth. She didn't want to know its shape or see its face. "I was thoughtless and rash, but I've drawn my tiles and must play them. Will you help me, Ronan? Will you do as I asked in my letter?"
"Yes." He still looked unhappy. "Though as far as I can see, there is little for me to do but stand and watch you fight."
"And Jess? Will she be at the duel?"
"Yes, as soon as she is done weeping her eyes out. What a fright you've given us, Kestrel."
Kestrel opened a saddlebag and passed Ronan the purse with the death-price. He took it, recognizing it by its weight and the fact that her letter had told him to expect it. Softly, he said, "You frightened me."
She embraced him, step #Quote by Marie Rutkoski
Slave quotes by William H. Seward

Slave quotes by Théun Mares
#174. If you are not strong enough to fight you have no choice but to accept the life of a slave. The hunter is a free being who cannot submit himself to slavery.

#177. It doesn't take much intelligence to understand that obedience to greed can make us a slave to stupidity. Yet, I think that the power of greed is amply illustrated by simply taking note of how many intelligent people have chosen slavery. #Quote by Craig D. Lounsbrough
Slave quotes by Naomi Novik
#178. You can actually muck with history and think about what if, why not. What if there were dragons in the Incan Empire that allowed them to resist colonization? What if there were a massive dragon empire in the middle of the interior of southern Africa that decided to take objection to the slave trade? #Quote by Naomi Novik
Slave quotes by Brandon Sanderson

Slave quotes by Richard Flanagan
#185. I think if 'The Narrow Road To The Deep North' is one of the high points of Japanese culture, then the experience of my father, who was a slave laborer on the Death Railway, represents one of its low points. #Quote by Richard Flanagan

Slave quotes by Jiddu Krishnamurti
#189. Why is one a slave to thought ? Why has thought become so important in all our lives -thought being ideas, being the response to the accumulated memories in the brain cells? Perhaps many of you have not even asked such a question before, or if you have you may have said, "it's of very little importance- what is important is emotion." But I don't see how you can separate the two. If thought does not give continuity to feeling, feeling dies very quickly. So why in our daily lives, in our grinding, boring, frightened lives, has thought taken on such inordinate importance? #Quote by Jiddu Krishnamurti
Slave quotes by Erich Fromm
#190. A man driven to incessant work by a sense of deep insecurity and loneliness; or another one driven by ambition, or greed for money. In all these cases the person is the slave of a passion, and his activity is in reality a "passivity" because he is driven; he is the sufferer, not the "actor." On the other hand, a man sitting quiet and contemplating, with no purpose or aim except that of experiencing himself and his oneness with the world, is considered to be "passive," because he is not "doing" anything. #Quote by Erich Fromm
Slave quotes by Peter Watts
#191. Don't feel too bad. Everyone's in chains here. Eriophora's a slave ship. We cavemen are shackled by our need for air and food and water, by the disorienting discontinuity of lives cut into slices spread centuries apart. The Chimp is shackled by its own stupidity, And you, well... #Quote by Peter Watts
Slave quotes by April Cassidy
#192. Male domination - where a husband forcefully asserts dominance in physically, emotionally, or spiritually abusive ways and treats his wife harshly without godly love - is a sinful distortion of male headship. A wife becoming slave-like is also a sinful distortion that undermines the value, dignity, beauty, and worth of a wife and warps the picture of what godly femininity is supposed to be. Male passivity is a sinful distortion of biblical masculinity that abandons God-given responsibility and accountability and endangers a man's wife and family. #Quote by April Cassidy
Slave quotes by Warren Farrell
#193. The male corporate model is built on a man's greater willingness to be a slave of sorts - especially once he has to provide for children. #Quote by Warren Farrell
Slave quotes by Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj
#194. Detach yourself from all that makes your mind restless. Renounce all that disturbs its peace. If you want peace, deserve it. By being a slave to your desires and fears, you disturb peace. #Quote by Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj
Slave quotes by Lauren Kate

Slave quotes by Frederick Douglass
#200. The better you treat a slave, the more you destroy his value as a slave, and enhance the probability of his eluding the grasp of the slaveholder; the more kindly you treat him, the more wretched you make him, while you keep him in the condition of a slave. #Quote by Frederick Douglass
