The following is the original source cited in the sentences below:
During these leisure times, those old notions about freedom would steal
over me again. When in Mr. Gardner's employment, I was kept in such a perpetual
whirl of excitement, I could think of nothing, scarcely, but my life; and in
thinking of my life, I almost forgot my liberty. I have observed this in my
experience of slavery--that whenever my condition was improved, instead of its
increasing my contentment, it only increased my desire to be free, and set me
to thinking of plans to gain my freedom. I have found that, to make a contented
slave, it is necessary to make a thoughtless one. It is necessary to darken
his moral and mental vision, and, as far as possible, to annihilate the power
of reason. He must be able to detect no inconsistencies in slavery; he must
be made to feel that slavery is right; and he can be brought to that only when
he ceases to be a man.
