Rosa Parks (1913-2005)

“You must never be fearful about what you are doing when it is right.”

“Have you ever been hurt and the place tries to heal a bit, and you just pull the scar off of it over and over again.”

“Each person must live their life as a model for others.”

“I would like to be known as a person who is concerned about freedom and equality and justice and prosperity for all people.”

“I would like to be remembered as a person who wanted to be free… so other people would be also free.”

“Racism is still with us. But it is up to us to prepare our children for what they have to meet, and, hopefully, we shall overcome.”

“I have learned over the years that when one’s mind is made up, this diminishes fear; knowing what must be done does away with fear.”

“The only tired I was, was tired of giving in.”

“No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.”

“I believe we are here on the planet Earth to live, grow up and do what we can to make this world a better place for all people to enjoy freedom.”

“Arrest me for sitting on a bus? You may do that.”

“I had given up my seat before, but this day, I was especially tired. Tired from my work as a seamstress, and tired from the ache in my heart.”

“All I was doing was trying to get home from work.”
