I do not trust people who don’t love themselves and yet tell me, ‘I love you.’ There is an African saying which is: Be careful when a naked person offers you a shirt.
Don’t be so humble - you are not that great.
We are just an advanced breed of monkeys on a minor planet of a very average star. But we can understand the Universe. That makes us something very special.
A trap is only a trap if you don’t know about it. If you know about it, it’s a challenge.
Be stubborn about your goals, but flexible about your methods.
Speak when you are angry and you will make the best speech you will ever regret.
Individuals do not create rebellions; conditions do.
Imam Jamil Abdullah Al-Amin (H. Rap Brown)
I hope you do not let anyone else’s expectations direct the course of your life.
I am mine.
before I am ever anyone else’s.
You may think I’m small, but I have a universe in my head.
