Here’s two for Black History Month 2021:

Do not judge me by my successes, judge me by how many times I fell down and got back up again.


No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background, or religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.

Here’s  two  for  Black  History  Month:

If  there  is  no   struggle,  there  is  no  progress.


Where  justice  is  denied,  where  poverty  is  enforced,  where  ignorance  prevails,  and  where  any  one  class  is  made  to  feel  that  society  is  an  organized  conspiracy  to  oppress,  rob  and  degrade  them,  neither  persons  nor  property  will  be  safe.

For  Black  History  Month:

Never  forget  that  intelligence  rules  the  world  and  ignorance  carries  the  burden.  Therefore  remove  yourself  as  far  as  possible  from  ignorance  and  seek  as  far  as  possible  to  be  intelligent.
