“Chance has never yet satisfied the hope of a suffering people.”

“Look for me in the whirlwind or the storm, look for me all around you, for, with God’s grace, I shall come and bring with me countless millions of black slaves who have died in America and the West Indies and the millions in Africa to aid you in the fight for Liberty, Freedom and Life.”
– Marcus Mosiah Garvey

“If you have no confidence in self, you are twice defeated in the race of life.”

“Liberate the minds of men and ultimately you will liberate the bodies of men.”

“Men who are in earnest are not afraid of consequences. “

“There shall be no solution to this race problem until you, yourselves, strike the blow for liberty. “

“With confidence, you have won before you have started.”

“A people without the knowledge of their past history, origin and culture is like a tree without roots.”

“Intelligence rules the world, ignorance carries the burden…” 

“I am not opposed to the white race as charged by my enemies. I have no time to hate any one. All my time is devoted to the up-building and development of the Negro Race.”

“The ends you serve that are selfish will take you no further than yourself but the ends you serve that are for all, in common, will take you into eternity.”
– Marcus Mosiah Garvey
August 17, 1887 –  June 10, 1940
