I told the Lord I wanted two names 'cause everybody else had two, and the Lord gave me Truth, because I was to declare the truth to the people. /Sojourner Truth
  • ⋅Let ... individuals make the most of what God has given them, have their neighbors do the same, and then do all they can to serve each other.

I have borne thirteen children, and seen most all sold off to slavery, and when I cried out with my mother's grief, none but Jesus heard me! And ain't I a woman? /Sojourner Truth

  • ⋅It is the mind that makes the body. /Sojourner Truth

  • ⋅I must sojourn once to the ballot-box before I die. I hear the ballot-box is a beautiful glass globe, so you can see all the votesas they go in. Now, the first time I vote I'll see if the woman's vote looks any different from the rest--if it makes any stir or commotion. If it don't inside, it need not outside. /Sojourner Truth
  • ⋅Life is a hard battle anyway. If we laugh and sing a little as we fight the good fight of freedom, it makes it all go easier. I will not allow my life's light to be determined by the darkness around me. /Sojourner Truth
