- Achievement brings its own anticlimax.


- All great achievements require time.


- All men are prepared to accomplish the incredible if their ideals are threatened.


- Any book that helps a child to form a habit of reading, to make reading one of his deep and continuing needs, is good for him.


- 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.


- At fifteen life had taught me undeniably that surrender, in its place, was as honorable as resistance, especially if one had no choice.


- Bitterness is like cancer. It eats upon the host. But anger is like fire. It burns it all clean.


- Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.


- Courage is the most important of all the virtues, because without courage you can't practice any other virtue consistently. You can practice any virtue erratically, but nothing consistently without courage.


- Effective action is always unjust.
