Some great quotes (partly edited): 

  • Nelson Mandela: “It always seems impossible until it is done. ”
  • Fannie Lou Hamer: “I am sick and tired of being sick and tired. ”
  • Nina Turner: “People want to have a good life, not decent. People don’t get up for decent. They get up for good! | “There is no red or blue way to be poor. There is no black or white way to be poor. ”
  • Jimmy Dore: “I grew up Catholic. And we used to have to be charitable towards the poor. … But it seems now, we have shamed people who are poor, and we have shamed work — like people who have minimum wage jobs should be ashamed of work. No-one should be ashamed! By the way, human dignity does not come by selling your body to a capitalist. You are born with human dignity. You don’t need to go get it from a company or a corporation or a capitalist. You have it inherent in your humanness. ”
  • Nina Turner: “That’s part of our social contract. That’s part of what the founding fathers… ”
  • Nina Turner quoting Helen Keller: “One must never consent to creep when one feels the urge to soar. ” (the correct quote: One can never consent to creep when one feels an impulse to soar.” – I must say, I like Nina’s “must” better, though.)
  • Nina Turner: “80% of Democrats, 73% of Afro-Americans, sixty-something percent of Hispanics, over 50-something percent of women are for Bernie Sanders…”
