Go for it now. The future is promised to no one.
Well done is better than well said.
Be thine own palace, or the world's thy jail.
It's always too early to quit.
By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail.
Never complain and never explain.
Things do not happen. Things are made to happen.
If you're going through hell, keep going.
Problems are not stop signs, they are guidelines.
Be kind whenever possible. It is always possible.
Life loves to be taken by the lapel and told: 'I'm with you kid. Let's go.'
My great hope is to laugh as much as I cry to get my work done and try to love somebody and have the courage to accept the love in return.
If you have only one smile in you give it to the people you love.
Love recognizes no barriers. It jumps hurdles, leaps fences, penetrates walls to arrive at its destination full of hope.
If we lose love and self respect for each other, this is how we finally die.
Love is like a virus. It can happen to anybody at any time.
The sadness of the women's movement is that they don't allow the necessity of love. See, I don't personally trust any revolution where love is not allowed.
As far as I knew white women were never lonely, except in books. White men adored them, Black men desired them and Black women worked for them.
All men are prepared to accomplish the incredible if their ideals are threatened.
Music was my refuge. I could crawl into the space between the notes and curl my back to loneliness.
