"I grew up like a neglected weed—ignorant of liberty, having no experience of it."

"I would fight for my liberty so long as my strength lasted, and if the time came for me to go, the Lord would let them take me."

"'Twant me, ’twas the Lord. I always told Him, 'I trust to you. I don’t know where to go or what to do, but I expect you to lead me,' and He always did."
