Famous quotes containing the words life and/or early:

    Political life at Washington is like political life in a suburban vestry.
    Oscar Wilde (1854–1900)

    It was common practice for me to take my children with me whenever I went shopping, out for a walk in a white neighborhood, or just felt like going about in a white world. The reason was simple enough: if a black man is alone or with other black men, he is a threat to whites. But if he is with children, then he is harmless, adorable.
    —Gerald Early (20th century)
