Frederick Douglass about slavery (“Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass, an American Slave”, 1845) - I was broken in body, soul, and spirit. My natural elasticity was crushed, my intellect languished, the disposition to read departed, the cheerful spark that lingered about my eye died; the dark night of slavery closed in upon me; and behold a man transformed into a brute!
