Few Powerful & Best Slavery Quotes

"The sovereign being is burdened with a servitude that crushes him, and the condition of free men is deliberate servility."
"The blacks of this region are a cheerful, careless, dirty, race, not hard worked, and in many respects indulgently treated. It is of course the desire of the master that his slaves shall be laborious; on the other hand it is the determination of the slave to lead as easy a life as he can. The master has the power of punishment on his side; the slave, on his, has invincible inclination, and a thousand expedients learned by long practice... Good natured though imperfect and slovenly obedience on one side, is purchased by good treatment on the other."
"Men would rather be starving and free than fed in bonds."
"Slavery is a weed that grows on every soil."
