Oh! that my soul had winged its flight, When first I saw the morning light, To worlds of liberty!

— George Moses Horton

The most sensational George Moses Horton quotes to discover and learn by heart

My genius from a boy Has fluttered like a bird within my heart;

But could not thus confined her power employ, Impatient to depart.


I leave my parents here behind And all my friends to love resigned 'Tis grief to go, but death to stay Farewell -- I'm gone with love away.
