William Lloyd Garrison attacked the monstrous wrong

Yet with no arms but his pen and his voice, with no funds and without a single subscriber to support his newspaper, [William Lloyd] Garrison attacked the monstrous wrong, and for a generation urged unrelenting war against it. Poverty and hardship, abuse, execration and contempt, the jail, the mob, and the danger of violent death, never appalled him nor turned him from his purpose.
