Harriet Tubman,

Harriet Tubman once said,
"There was one of two things
I had a right to, liberty or death;
if I could not have one, I would
the other; for no man should
take me alive; I should fight for
my liberty as long as my strength
lasted,and when the time came for me to go, the Lord would let them take me."
