Prophecy Quotations

James Allen

After the bombing of Pearl Harbor, December 7, 1941, the United States would enter, in a formal way, what had been up to that date strictly a European conflict. Marcus Garvey's prophecy about the European scramble to maintain dominance over the whole world was now a reality.
John Henrik Clarke

A great man is a torch in the darkness, a beacon in superstition's night, an inspiration and a prophecy.
