Wikiquote no longer allows unsourced quotations, and they are in process of being removed from our pages (see Wikiquote:Limits on quotations); but if you can provide a reliable and precise source for any quote on this list please move it to Frederick Douglass. --Antiquary 19:26, 15 April 2009 (UTC)

  • Once you learn to read you will be forever free.
  • There is a class of people who seem to think that if a man should fall overboard into the sea with a Bible in his pocket it would hardly be possible to drown. I prayed for twenty years but received no answer until I prayed with my legs.

Quote containing "deprecated" is in original pamphlet by Douglass as "depreciated."[edit]

Yes, I know there are thousands of pages that use the word "deprecated" but in the original pamphlet by Douglass he uses the word "depreciated."
