"History will be kind to me, for I intend to write it." Winston Churchill Watch your thoughts, they become words. Watch your words, they become actions. Watch your actions, they become habits. Watch your habits, they become your character. Watch your character, it becomes your destiny It is better to lead from behind and to put others in front, especially when you celebrate victory when nice things occur. You take the front line when there is danger. Then people will appreciate your leadership. Nelson Mandela Education is the passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to those who prepare for it today. Malcolm X Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world. Obstacles are those frightful things you see when you take your eyes off your goal. Henry Ford The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character - that is the goal of true education. Martin Luther King, Jr. I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear. Nelson Mandela I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character. Martin Luther King, Jr. I detest racialism, because I regard it as a barbaric thing, whether it comes from a black man or a white man. Dear racist white people, When I was born I was black, when I grew up I was black, when I'm sick I'm black, when I go out in the sun I'm black, when I'm cold I'll be black, and when I die I'll be black. But you, when you where born you were pink, when you grew up you were white, when you're sick you're green, when you go out in the sun you turn red, when you're cold you turn blue, and when you die you'll turn purple. And you have the nerve to call me colored? Sincerely, black people. It is not our differences that divide us. It is our inability to recognize, accept, and celebrate those differences. Audre Lorde I look to a day when people will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.
