1) Isaac Tatum Hooper, caucasian male from Philadelphia, Quaker:
"I would do for a fugitive slave whatever I should like to have done for me. If he asked my protection, I would extend it to him to utmost of my power."
2) Levi Coffin, caucasian male from N Carolina:
My father addressed the slaves pleasantly, and then asked, "Well boys, why do they chain you?" The answer, "they have taken us away from our wives and children, and they chain us lest we should make our escape and go back to them." Later, as my father explained to me the meaning of slavery, the thought arose in my mind, "how terrible we should feel if father were taken from us."
3) Thomas Garret, caucasian male from Delaware, Quaker:
I felt my penalty was a license to help slaves for the rest of my life. If any of you know of a slave who needs assistance, send him to me. Now that you have relived me, I will go home and add a story to my hous so that I can accommodate more of God's poor.
4) Isaac Beck, caucasian male from Missisippi:
Our aim was safety not speed, for it made little difference to the fugitive whether he was a week or a month getting to Canada, so that he got there safely and was fed on the way.
5) Josiah Henson, black slave born in Maryland:
I threw myself on the ground, rolled in the sand, seized handfuls of it and kissed them, and danced round till, in the eyes of several who were present, I passed for a madman!
6) Jermain Loguen, black male, abolitionist and religous leader born in Tennesse:
I don't respect this law. I don't fear it. I won't obey it! It outlaws me, and I outlaw it!
7) Frederick Douglas, educated black male from Maryland, powerful orator:
Let us render the tyrant no aid; let us not hold the light by which he can trace the footprints of our fleeing brother.
8) Harriet Tubman, black female:
I was free, but there was no one to welcome me to this land of freedom. I was a stranger in a strange land. I was free, and they should be free.
