Famous quotes containing the words widow and/or black:

    A widow has two duties of a contradictory nature—she is a mother, and she ought to exert a father’s power.
    Honoré De Balzac (1799–1850)

    Our inherent human charity and our religious beliefs will be taxed to the limit. No poor, rural, weak, or black person should ever have to bear the additional burden of being deprived of the opportunity of an education, a job, or simple justice.
    Jimmy Carter (James Earl Carter, Jr.)
