Famous quotes containing the words black, tom and/or campbell:

    It’s not like I was out there running and not knowing what’s going on in the country. I knew what was going on, but I felt this is not something that is going to bog me down and not let me participate. The only way I was going to make a difference for myself or any other black person is to say the hurdles were there and do what I had to do.
    Wyomia Tyus (b. 1945)

    Come dame or maid, be not afraid,
    Poor Tom will injure nothing.
    —Unknown. Tom o’ Bedlam’s Song (l. 11–12)

    ‘Tis distance lends enchantment to the view,
    And robes the mountain in its azure hue.
    —Thomas Campbell (1777–1844)
