Frances Wright Quote: “To give liberty to a slave before he understands its value is, perhaps, rather to impose a penalty than to bestow a blessing...”
Frances Wright Quote: “Fathers and husbands! do ye not also understand this fact? Do ye not see how, in the mental bondage of your wives and fair companions, ye yourselves are bound?”
Frances Wright Quote: “All that I say is, examine, inquire. Look into the nature of things. Search out the grounds of your opinions, the for and against. Know why you believe, understand what you believe, and possess a reason for the faith that is in you.”
