    Those people have no real interest in a science who only begin to get excited about it when they themselves have made discoveries in it.
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)

    ... some of my people could have been left [in Africa] and are living there. And I can’t understand them and they don’t know me and I don’t know them because all we had was taken away from us. And I became kind of angry; I felt the anger of why this had to happen to us. We were so stripped and robbed of our background, we wind up with nothing.
    Fannie Lou Hamer (1917–1977)
