The white American man makes the white American woman maybe not superfluous but just a little kind of decoration. Not really important to turning around the wheels of the state. Well the black American woman has never been able to feel that way. No black American man at any time in our history in the United States has been able to feel that he didn't need that black woman right against him, shoulder to shoulder -- in that cotton field, on the auction block, in the ghetto, wherever.

For the cause that lacks assistance, The wrong that needs resistance, For the future in the distance, And the good that I can do.
The truest help we can render an afflicted man is not to take his burden from him, but to call out his best energy, that he may be able to bear the burden.
We all need each other.
No one will persist long in helping someone who will not help themselves.
The more anger towards the past you carry in your heart, the less capable you are of loving in the present.
Anyone can become angry -- that is easy. But to be angry with the right person, to the right degree, at the right time, for the right purpose, and in the right way -- this is not easy.
We have a lot of anxieties, and one cancels out another very often.
Well, excuuuuuse me!!!!
Oh my son's my son till he gets him a wife, but my daughter's my daughter all her life.
I only have two rules for my newly born daughter: she will dress well and never have sex.
Many persons have a wrong idea of what constitutes true happiness. It is not attained through self-gratification but through fidelity to a worthy purpose.
True happiness arises, in the first place, from the enjoyment of one's self, and in the next, from the friendship and conversation of a few select companions.
How do you know so much about everything? was asked of a very wise and intelligent man; and the answer was By never being afraid or ashamed to ask questions as to anything of which I was ignorant.
I find that a great part of the information I have, was acquired by looking up something and finding something else on the way.
Knowledge is power.
I love to see a young girl go out and grab the world by the lapels. Life's a bitch. You've got to go out and kick ass.
Strength is born in the deep silence of long-suffering hearts; not amid joy.
People need hard times and oppression to develop psychic muscles.
To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.
Great things are not done by impulse, but by a series of small things brought together.
If life were measured by accomplishments, most of us would die in infancy.
We will either find a way, or make one.
Dedicate yourself to the good you deserve and desire for yourself. Give yourself peace of mind. You deserve to be happy. You deserve delight.
In every adversity there lies the seed of an equivalent advantage. In every defeat is a lesson showing you how to win the victory next time.
What I am looking for is a blessing not in disguise.
I bring to my life a certain amount of mess.
There is a great deal of unmapped country within us which would have to be taken into account in an explanation of our gusts and storms.
Failure is success if we learn from it.
When things are bad, we take comfort in the thought that they could always get worse. And when they are, we find hope in the thought that things are so bad they have to get better.
Suffering! We owe to it all that is good in us, all that gives value to life; we owe to it pity, we owe to it courage, we owe to it all the virtues.
Even if you fall on your face, you're still moving forward.
Forget the times of your distress, but never forget what they taught you.
Every hardship; every joy; every temptation is a challenge of the spirit; that the human soul may prove itself. The great chain of necessity wherewith we are bound has divine significance; and nothing happens which has not some service in working out the sublime destiny of the human soul.
Knowledge is power, but enthusiasm pulls the switch.
