IMPORTANT QUOTATIONS - QUOTES AND ANALYSIS

The following quotations are important at various points in the story: (Doubleday and Company, Inc., 1900 1901)


1. “The picture of several dozen boys and girls in a schoolroom engaged in study made a deep impression upon me, and I had the feeling that to get into a schoolhouse and study in this way would be about the same as getting into paradise.”

(pg. 7; here Booker emphasizes how the importance of education was instilled in him at a very early age.)

2. “...I think it will found to be true that there are few instances, either in slavery or freedom, in which a member of my race has been known to betray a specific trust.”

(pg. 13; Booker makes this comment as a summation for why the slaves felt no bitterness towards........

.......23. “It is the duty of the Negro . . . to deport himself modestly in regard to political claims, depending upon the slow but sure influences that proceed from the possession of property, intelligence, and high character for the full recognition of his political rights.”

(pg. 235; This is Bookers’ assertion that Negroes will not receive their political rights until some time passes and during that time Negroes behave in a modest manner.)

24. “There is rarely such a combination of mental and physical delight in any effort as that which comes to a public speaker when he feels that he has a great audience completely under his control.”

(pg. 243; Booker admits this delight that comes from making a great speech.)
