Escaped slave William Wells Brown rose to prominence as an abolitionist lecturer, novelist, playwright, and historian.

William Wells Brown quotes ~
• “The duty I owe to the slave, to truth, and to God, demands that I should use my pen and tongue so long as life and health are vouchsafed to me to employ them, or until the last chain shall fall from the limbs of the last slave in America and the world.”
• “The last struggle for our rights, the battle for our civilization, is entirely with ourselves.”
• “People don't follow titles, they follow courage.”
• “All I demand for the black man is, that the white people shall take their heels off his neck, and let him have a chance to rise by his own efforts.”

Sir Thomas Browne
b. 10-19-1605; London, England
d. 10-19-1682; Norwich

Thomas Browne, who had a deep curiosity of the natural world, authored works in medicine, religion, and science. Herman Melville called Browne a “cracked archangel”, both Edgar Allan Poe and R. D. Laing use quotes from Browne in their work, and Jorge Luis Borges described Browne as “the best prose writer in the English language”.

Thomas Browne quotes ~
• “No one should approach the temple of science with the soul of a money changer.”
• “When we desire to confine our words, we commonly say they are spoken under the rose.”
• “I have often admired the mystical way of Pythagoras, and the secret Magic of numbers.”
• “Art is the perfection of nature.”
• “Persecution is a bad and indirect way to plant Religion.”
• “There is no man alone, because every man is a Microcosm, and carries the whole world about him.”
• “But how shall we expect charity towards others, when we are uncharitable to ourselves? Charity begins at home, is the voice of the world, yet is every man his greatest enemy, and as it were, his own executioner.”
• “Be charitable before Wealth makes thee covetous.”
• “He who discommendeth others obliquely commendeth himself.”
