Famous quotes containing the word elizabeth:

    Once in a while, God sends a good white person my way, even to this day. I think it’s God’s way of keeping me from becoming too mean. And when he sends a nice one to me, then I have to eat crow. And honey, crow is a tough old bird to eat, let me tell you.
    —Annie Elizabeth Delany (b. 1891)
