Famous quotes containing the words summer and/or boycott:

    The summer hath his joys
    And winter his delights;
    Though love and all his pleasures are but toys,
    They shorten tedious nights.
    Thomas Campion (1567–1620)

    Women are the people who are going to relieve us from all this oppression and depression. The rent boycott that is happening in Soweto now is alive because of the women. It is the women who are on the street committees educating the people to stand up and protect each other.
    Nontsikelelo Albertina Sisulu (b. 1919)
