"The eye of the reformer is met with angry flashes, portending disastrous times; but his heart may well beat lighter at the thought that America is young, and that she is still in the impressible stage of her existence..."

"... May he not hope that high lessons of wisdom, of justice and of truth, will yet give direction to her destiny?"

-- Frederick Douglass, "What to the Slave Is the Fourth of July?"
