A Quote by Kahlil Gibran on duty, freedom, humanity, nobility, oppression, slavery, society, spirit, and truth

They have exiled me now from their society and I am pleased, because humanity does not exile except the one whose noble spirit rebels against despotism and oppression. He who does not prefer exile to slavery is not free by any measure of freedom, truth and duty.

They tell me: If you see a slave sleeping, do not wake him lest he be dreaming of freedom. I tell them: If you see a slave sleeping, wake him and explain to him freedom.

A Quote by Joseph R. Sizoo, D.D. on crime, god, heart, honor, jesus, life, mind, oppression, people, prosperity, slavery, soul, tragedy, tyranny, and war

It is a tragedy when the mind, soul and heart are in slavery in a way of life which refuses to recognize that people have rights before God. It is a war which makes hate a badge of honor, slavery the keystone to prosperity. Not to resist would make one an accomplice to crime. Resistance was part of the program of Jesus. We must resist oppression and tyranny. We have to end it no matter what it costs.

I think the person who takes a job in order to live - that is to say, (just) for the money - has turned himself into a slave.

A Quote by John Greenleaf Whittier on men and slavery

For still the new transcends the old In signs and tokens manifold; Slaves rise up men; the olive waves, With roots deep set in battle graves!

A Quote by John Greenleaf Whittier on beauty, children, deed, duty, faith, fatherhood, god, good, humility, justice, legends, life, mercy, nature, needs, praise, prayer, purity, reason, sacrifice, service, slavery, tenderness, and trust

We live by faith; but Faith is not the slave Of text and legend. Reason's voice and God's, Nature's and Duty's, never are at odds. What asks our Father of His children, save Justice and mercy and humility, A reasonable service of good deeds, Pure living, tenderness to human needs, Reverence and trust, and prayer for light to see The Master's footprints in our daily ways? No knotted scourge nor sacrificial knife, But the calm beauty of an ordered life Whose very breathing is unworded praise! - A life that stands as all true lives have stood Firm-rooted in the faith that God is Good.
