Excerpts from Addresses by Douglass
"I have seen dark hours in my life and I have seen the darkness gradually disappearing, and the light gradually increasing. One by one I have seen obstacles removed, errors corrected, prejudices softened, proscriptions relinquished, and my people advancing in all the elements that make up the sum of general welfare. I remember that God reigns in eternity and that whatever delays, disappointments, and discouragements may come, truth, justice, liberty, and humanity shall prevail."
