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

    I respect the ways of old folks, but the blood of a rooster or a goat cannot turn the seasons, change the course of the clouds and fill them up with water like bladders. The other night, at the ceremony for Legba, I danced and sang my fill: I am a black man, no? and I enjoyed it like a true Negro should. When the drums beat, I feel it in the pit of my stomach, I feel the itch in my hips and up and down my legs, I have got to join the party. But that is all.
    Jacques Roumain (1907–1945)

    The palsy plagues my pulses
    —Unknown. Tom o’ Bedlam’s Song (l. 37)

    Few, few shall part, where many meet!
    The snow shall be their winding sheet,
    And every turf, beneath their feet,
    Shall be a soldier’s sepulchre.
    —Thomas Campbell (1774–1844)
