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.
  • There was a right side and a wrong side in the late war, which no sentiment ought to cause us to forget, and while to-day we should have malice toward none, and charity toward all, it is no part of our duty to confound right with wrong.

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."

I will wait a week and then make the correction if there is no objection. --Cberlet (talk) 02:45, 19 February 2014 (UTC)
