nnq : twenty-one

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.”

– day twenty-one –

“if the past is to be buried, it must first die.”

“…in the movement, one needs to have a feeling for the temporary – of making something as good as one can, while it lasts.”

“…those few negroes who have lifted themeslves, through personal strength, talent or luck, above the lives of their fellow blacks – like single fish that leap and flash for a split second above the surface of the sea – are but fleeting exceptions to that vast tragic school that swims below in the depths, against the current, silently and heavily, struggling against the waves of vicissitudes that spell a common fate.”

author forgotten

*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.
