Solomon Northrup Quote #1

Posted by sprout333 on Thursday, May 15, 2008

The leisure hours allowed me were generally either employed over my books, or playing on the violin—an amusement which was the ruling passion of my youth. It has also been the source of consolation since, affording, pleasure to the simple beings with whom my lot was cast, and beguiling my own thoughts, for many hours, from the painful contemplation of my fate.

-- Solomon Northrup, "Twelve Years a Slave"
