nnq : day twenty

by C5Damani (old head of the movement)

“How refreshing to consume words that have meaning and depth. In the great and honored tradition of wisdom literature and if there is anything that could be called instant wisdom, ‘nigga notes & quotes’ fills that void. This book may be the finest book of quotes, anecdotes, sayings and sage bromides any people struggling for human dignity and liberation will ever read.”

“…so many brothers and sisters are saving themselves for the revolution. So many brothers and sisters are saving themselves for the next great harvest. But we must remember that false courage lies in waiting for great events, but real courage consists in conquering small events day by day.”

“…it is not easy to survive in a society that says that you do not count. In fact, many blacks do not survive. Moreover, with the absence of “Black Pride” many young blacks have no respect for themselves or for anybody else… freedom is first and foremost an inner recognition of self-respect, a knowledge that one was not put upon this earth to be a nobody.”

*Since most of these quotes were collected prior to 1985 it means some of the authors of these quotes, I have simply forgotten… blame old age! (Ha) When the author is known, I will indicate it. When an author is not indicated, please forgive me and understand. Furthermore, this collection of quotes was first started as a personal endeavor never meant to be shared publicly thus the reason why some authors may not be indicated.
