A Quote from Harriet Tubman

Harriet Tubman

Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.

Harriet Tubman

1822 – 1913    

Harriet Tubman was one of the greatest heroes of American History. Born into slavery, she was beaten and whipped as a child. She also received a severe head injury when she was young, by a slave owner who was trying to hit another slave, with a large metal object. And yet she escaped and went on to help to free hundreds of slaves, over a long period of time, to the point of people calling her, “Moses”.

By the way, she was the first woman during the Civil War, to lead an armed raid. In doing so, she helped free 700 slaves at once! She later went to work as a spy for the Union Army. After the war she worked for the Women’s Suffrage Movement. What an amazing person she was!

Now look at this quote. You will not find any quote more positive. If anyone ever had the right to be bitter, negative, and angry she did – but the fact is she was not. What encouragement! What strength! Remember you have the strength within you. On your worst day remember these words, maybe even look her up on Google as a way of lifting your spirits. Dream your dreams and go for it!

According to Harriet Tubman, you literally have the ability to change the world!

One life can truly make a difference, and you are that life!

I wish you peace, and that your dreams for a better world, will come true.

  1. She was an amazing woman! I have many pictures of her, one very recent from a trip to Great Black Wax Museum. I look at her facial features, and I am intrigued by her expressions. Thank you for this!
