" Once I said to myself it would be a thousand times better for Jim to be a slave at home where his family was... so I'd better write a letter to Tom Sawyer and tell him to tell Miss Watson where he was. "
"It would get all around that Huck Finn helped a slave to get his freedom."
"That more I studies about this the more my conscience went to grinding me and the more wicked and low-down and ornery I got to feeling."
"You can't pray a lie... I'l go and write the letter and then see if I can pray... I felt good all washed clean of a sin."
"I was letting on to give up sin, but away inside of me I was holding onto the biggest one of all."
"I see Jim all the time... I'd see him standing my watch on top of his'n 'stead of calling me."
