Shirley Chisholm: Words of Wisdom

"We Americans have a chance to become someday a nation in which all racial stocks and classes can exist in their own selfhoods, but meet on a basis of respect and equality and live together, socially, economically, and politically."

"You don't make progress by standing on the sidelines, whimpering and complaining. You make progress by implementing ideas."

"Service is the rent that you pay for room on this earth."
