I've learned a lot about how people have to fight through their whole lives just to be themselves.
Through the years I have received my share of recognition for efforts in the fields of sports, the arts, the struggle for full citizenship for the Negro people, labor's rights and the fight for peace.
I think you have to control the materials to an extent, but it's important to let the materials have a kind of power for themselves; like the natural power of gravity, if you are painting on a wall, it makes the paint trickle and it drips; there is no reason to fight that.
Sometimes I want to party, sometimes I want to fight and sometimes I want to cry.
The worker must have bread, but she must have roses, too. Help, you women of privilege, give her the ballot to fight with.

In a battle all you need to make you fight is a little hot blood and the knowledge that it's more dangerous to lose than to win.
George Bernard Shaw
