What Can We Do?

Thursday, June 02, 2005

"There are thousands who are in opinion opposed to slavery and war, who yet do nothing to put an end to them. There are nine hundred and ninety-nine patrons of virtue to every virtuous man." -Henry David Thoreau...
"I know this well that if one thousand, if one hundred, if ten men whom I could name-if ten honest men only-ay, if one honest man, in this state of Massachusetts, ceasing to hold slaves, were actually to withdraw from this coparternship [with the government] and be locked up in the county jail therefor, it would be the abolition of slavery in America. For it matters not how small the beginning may seem to be: what is once well done is done forever. But we love better to talk about it." -David Henry Thoreau
