Famous quotes containing the words hand and/or black:

    I can nail my left palm
    to the left-hand cross-piece but
    I can’t do everything myself.
    I need a hand to nail the right,
    a help, a love, a you, a wife.
    Alan Dugan (b. 1923)

    We black women must forgive black men for not protecting us against slavery, racism, white men, our confusion, their doubts. And black men must forgive black women for our own sometimes dubious choices, divided loyalties, and lack of belief in their possibilities. Only when our sons and our daughters know that forgiveness is real, existent, and that those who love them practice it, can they form bonds as men and women that really can save and change our community.
