    Go where he will, the wise man is at home,
    His hearth the earth,—his hall the azure dome;
    Where his clear spirit leads him, there’s his road,
    By God’s own light illumined and foreshadowed.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    I think one of the nicest things that we created as a generation was just the fact that we could say, Hey, I don’t like white people.
    Nikki Giovanni (b. 1943)

    They give us a pair of cloth shorts twice a year for all our clothing. When we work in the sugar mills and catch our finger in the millstone, they cut off our hand; when we try to run away, they cut off our leg: both things have happened to me. It is at this price that you eat sugar in Europe.
    Voltaire [François Marie Arouet] (1694–1778)
