Famous quotes containing the word occur:

    —G.C. (Georg Christoph)

    I am a colored woman or a Negro woman. Either one is OK. People dislike those words now. Today these use this term African American. It wouldn’t occur to me to use that. I prefer to think of myself as an American, that’s all!

    Dorothy H. Cohen (20th century)
