My Favorite Quotes From Sarah Moore Grimké

Sarah Moore Grimké (November 26, 1792 – December 23, 1873) was a suffragette, abolitionist, and Bible-believing Christian. From her early days, she fought against slavery and for women’s rights. No matter what opposition she faced, she was steadfast in her Quaker faith and cited as the source of her strength. Here are my top favorite 10 quotes from Sarah Moore Grimké:

“‘The Lord is my light, and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The Lord is the strength of my life; whom shall I be afraid?’ She must feel, if she feels rightly, that she is filling one of the most important duties laid upon her as an accountable being, and that her character, instead of being ‘unnatural’, is in exact accordance with the will of Him.”

“The system of slavery is necessarily cruel. . . . All around is the mighty ruin of intellect, the appalling spectacle of the down-trodden image of God.”

“Here is written in characters of fire continually blazing before the eyes of every man who holds his fellow man in bondage—In the image of God created he man.”

“Slavery has . . . trampled the image of God in the dust.”

“I am in search of truth; and no obstacle shall prevent my prosecuting that search, because I believe the welfare of the world will be materially advanced by every new discovery we make of the designs of Jehovah in the creation of woman.”

“In all this sublime description of the creation of man, (which is a generic term including man and woman,) there is not one particle of difference intimated as existing between them. They were both made in the image of God; dominion was given to both over every other creature, but not over each other.”

“I have neither lamentation for the Then nor denunciation of the Now. All I feel is gratitude for the past, cheerful acquiescence in the present, bright hope for the future.”

“I know nothing of man’s rights, or woman’s rights; human rights are all that I recognize.”

“The virtue of female slaves is wholly at the mercy of irresponsible tyrants, and women are bought and sold in our slave markets, to gratify the brutal lust of those who bear the name of Christians.”

“I ask no favors for my sex, I surrender not our claim to equality. All I ask of our brethren is that they will take their feet from off our necks, and permit us to stand upright on the ground which God has designed us to occupy.”
