Class Quotations

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.
Frederick Douglass

Parents and schools should place great emphasis on the idea that it is all right to be different. Racism and all the other 'isms' grow from primitive tribalism, the instinctive hostility against those of another tribe, race, religion, nationality, class or whatever. You are a lucky child if your parents taught you to accept diversity.
Roger Ebert

Show class, have pride, and display character. If you do, winning takes care of itself.
Paul Bryant

Self-praise is for losers. Be a winner. Stand for something. Always have class, and be humble.
John Madden

True terror is to wake up one morning and discover that your high school class is running the country.
Kurt Vonnegut
