PinkMonkey® Quotations on . . .
Uncle Tom's Cabin
QUOTATION: Whipping and abuse are like laudanum: you have to double the
dose as the sensibilities decline.
QUOTATION: The longest day must have its closethe 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.
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 masterso 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 toilso
long it is impossible to make anything beautiful or desirable in the best-regulated
administration of slavery.
