Famous quotes containing the word occur:

    When great changes occur in history, when great principles are involved, as a rule the majority are wrong.
    Eugene V. Debs (1855–1926)

    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!
    Annie Elizabeth Delany (b. 1891)

    I defied nothing at all. I ignored the law because I didn’t know it existed. It didn’t occur to me that anyone would want to curb my inspiration.
    Margaret Anderson (1886–1973)
