Thomas Chatterton

1752 - 1770

A Quote by Thomas Chatterton on death, pride, and slavery

It is my PRIDE, my damn'd, native, unconquerable Pride, that plunges me into Distraction. You must know that 19/20th of my Composition is Pride. I must either live a Slave, a Servant; to have no Will of my own, no Sentiments of my own which I may freely declare as such; - or DIE - perplexing alternative!
