One who is a slaveholder at heart never recognizes a human being in a slave.
Angelina Grimké (1805-1879), U.S. abolitionist. As quoted in American Slavery As It Is, by Theodore D. Weld (1839).
Said on April 6, 1839. The daughters of a South Carolina slaveholding family, Angelina and her sister Sarah had moved north to escape the presence of the slave system and become active abolitionists.
