Harriet Tubman

Her courage is legendary

Her legacy is celebrated as it should be.

Giving us freedom was her Calling.

Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.
 
I freed a thousand slaves I could have freed a thousand more if only they knew they were slaves.
 
I grew up like a neglected weed – ignorant of liberty, having no experience of it.
 
I would fight for my liberty so long as my strength lasted, and if the time came for me to go, the Lord would let them take me.
 
’Twant me, ’twas the Lord. I always told him, “I trust to you. I don’t know where to go or what to do, but I expect you to lead me,” and he always did.
 
I had crossed the line. I was free; but there was no one to welcome me to the land of freedom. I was a stranger in a strange land.
 
I had reasoned this out in my mind, there was one of two things I had a right to, liberty or death; if I could not have one, I would have the other.
 
Quakers almost as good as colored. They call themselves friends and you can trust them every time.
