Frederick Douglass: The limits of tyrants

“Find out just what people will quietly submit to, and you have found out the exact measure of injustice and wrong which will be imposed on them, and these will continue till they are resisted with either words or blows. The limits of tyrants are prescribed by the endurance of those whom they oppress.” Frederick Douglass, African-American slave, and later abolitionist
