“There is nowhere you can go and only be with people who are like you. It's over. Give it up.”
“What would you be like if you had white hair and had not given up your principles? It might be wise as you deal with coalition efforts to think about the possibilities of going for fifty years.”
“Sometime day breaks in my life / Sometime the sun shines in my life / Sometime things work right in my life / You are my sometime.”
Bernice Johnson Reagon, U.S. singer, composer, scholar, social activist
