I think, though, as African-American women, we are always trained to value our community even at the expense of ourselves, and so we attempt to protect the African-American community.
Attempt the end, and never stand to doubt. Nothing's so hard but search will find it out.
You always want to try, in everything you do, to attempt something you've never tried before, and the only way to succeed at that is through failure, and the only way to succeed through failure is just banging your head against the wall over and over until you get to that interesting thing on the other side.
'Genes, Girls, and Gamow' was an attempt, even more than 'The Double Helix,' to mix science with one's personal life. With 'The Double Helix,' no one had done it before, but I thought I'd try.
James D. Watson

Anne Graham Lotz
I think that most actors, and they're a very strange lot actors, very strange people, but I think that they attempt to keep in touch with the child.
In my opinion, Jesus is God's attempt to reach man. But while I believe Jesus is the way to God, it makes no sense to hate people who disagree.

Much of outcomes research is a systematic attempt to exploit what is known and make it better.
