  12. Our nation was born in genocide when it embraced the doctrine that the original American, the Indian, was an inferior race. Even before there were large numbers of Negroes on our shore, the scar of our racial hatred had already disfigured colonial society. From the sixteenth century forward, blood flowed in battles over racial supremacy. We are perhaps the only nation which tried as a matter of national policy to wipe out its indigenous population. Moreover, we elevated that tragic experience into a noble crusade. Indeed, even today we have not permitted ourselves to reject or feel remorse for this shameful episode. Our literature, our films, our drama, our folklore all exalt it. Our children are still taught to respect the violence which reduced a red-skinned people of an earlier culture into a few fragmented groups herded into impoverished reservations. John Kennedy, Autobiography of malcolm x
  13. My thinking had been opened up wide in Mecca. I wrote long letters to my friends, in which I tried to convey to them my new insights into the American black man?s struggle and his problems as well as the depths of my search for truth and justice. ?I?ve had enough of someone else?s propaganda,? I had written to these friends. ?I am for truth, no matter who tells it. I am for justice, no matter who it is for or against. I am a human being first and foremost, and as such I?m for whoever and whatever benefits humanity as a whole.? The American white man?s press called me the angriest Negro in America. I wouldn?t deny that charge; I spoke exactly as I felt. I believe in anger. I believe it is a crime for anyone who is being brutalized to continue to accept that brutality without doing something to defend himself. I am for violence if non-violence means that we continue postponing or even delaying a solution to the American black man?s problem. White man hates to hear anybody, especially a black man, talk about the crime that the white man perpetrated on the black man. But let me remind you that when the white man came into this country, he certainly wasn?t demonstrating non-violence. malcolm X, Autobiography of malcolm x

  15. What importance can we attach to the things of this world? Friendship? It disappears when the one who is liked comes to grief, or the one who likes becomes powerful.

All that remains are those so-called happy days that flow past unnoticed in the obscurity of domestic cares, leaving man with the desire neither to lose his life nor to begin it over. Chateaubriand
  16. …in song the words tend to lose their significance, do often lose it, while at the other extreme, in current prose it is the musical value that tends to disappear – so that verse stands symmetrically, as it were, between song, on the one hand, and prose on the other – and is thus admirably and delicately balanced between the sensual and the intellectual power of language.
