Famous quotes containing the word richard:
“Im beginning to believe that Killer Illiteracy ought to rank near heart disease and cancer as one of the leading causes of death among Americans. What you dont know can indeed hurt you, and so those who can neither read nor write lead miserable lives, like Richard Wrights character, Bigger Thomas, born dead with no past or future.”
