Uncle Tom's Cabin

By

Harriet Beecher Stowe

QUOTATION: No one is so thoroughly superstitious as the godless man.
ATTRIBUTION: Harriet Beecher Stowe (1811–1896), U.S. novelist, anti-slavery campaigner. Uncle Tom’s Cabin, ch. 39 (1852).

QUOTATION: Whipping and abuse are like laudanum: you have to double the dose as the sensibilities decline.
ATTRIBUTION: Harriet Beecher Stowe (1811–1896), U.S. novelist, abolitionist. Uncle Tom’s Cabin, ch. 20 (1852).

QUOTATION: The longest day must have its close—the gloomiest night will wear on to a morning. An eternal, inexorable lapse of moments is ever hurrying the day of the evil to an eternal night, and the night of the just to an eternal day.
ATTRIBUTION: Harriet Beecher Stowe (1811–1896), U.S. novelist, anti-slavery campaigner. Uncle Tom’s Cabin, ch. 40 (1852).

QUOTATION: So long as the law considers all these human beings, with beating hearts and living affections, only as so many things belonging to the master—so long as the failure, or misfortune, or imprudence, or death of the kindest owner, may cause them any day to exchange a life of kind protection and indulgence for one of hopeless misery and toil—so long it is impossible to make anything beautiful or desirable in the best-regulated administration of slavery.
ATTRIBUTION: Harriet Beecher Stowe (1811–1896), U.S. novelist, anti-slavery campaigner. Uncle Tom’s Cabin, ch. 1 (1852).
