"The song of the slave represent the sorrows of his heart. I have often sung to drown my sorrow, to express my happiness."( Douglass 49)
"I was so terrified and horror-stricken at the sight,that I hide his myself in a closet. I expected it would be my turn next. (Douglass 38)
"I have often been utterly astonished,since I came to the north,to find persons who could speak of singing,among slaves."(Douglass 48)
