The price of hating other human beings is loving oneself less.

I feel that I am a citizen of the American dream and that the revolutionary struggle of which I am a part is a struggle against the American nightmare.

If God himself wills such misery on people whom I love, then I say I will deal with him!

What America demands in her Black champions is a brilliant, powerful body and a dull, bestial mind.

All the gods are dead except the god of war.

If you are not a part of the solution, you are a part of the problem.

Respect commands itself and can neither be given nor withheld when it is due.

We shall have our manhood. We shall have it or the earth will be leveled by our attempts to gain it.

You don’t have to teach people how to be human. You have to teach them how to stop being inhuman.

The most revolutionary statement in history is “Love thine enemy.”
