Zora Neale Hurston (author of Their Eyes Were Watching God — great book) has some of the best quotes.
One of my long-time favorites is:
Sometimes I feel discriminated against, but it does not make me angry. It merely astonishes me. How can any deny themselves the pleasure of my company? It’s beyond me.
Love makes your soul crawl out from its hiding place.
No man may make another free.
