Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Never look down on anybody unless you're helping him up.
Both tears and sweat are salty, but they render a different result. Tears will get you sympathy; sweat will get you change.
No one should negotiate their dreams. Dreams must be free to flee and fly high. No government, no legislature, has a right to limit your dreams. You should never agree to surrender your dreams.
Don't cry about what you don't have. Use what you got.
Our flag is red, white and blue, but our nation is a rainbow -- red, yellow, brown, black and white -- and we're all precious in God's sight.
Hold your head high, stick your chest out. It gets dark sometimes, but morning comes. Keep hope alive.
If you fall behind, run faster. Never give up, never surrender, and rise up against the odds.
At the end of the day, we must go forward with hope and not backward by fear and division.
You may not be responsible for being down, but you must be responsible for getting up.
