Famous quotes containing the words faith ringgold, ringgold and/or faith:

    I always knew I wanted to be somebody. I think that’s where it begins. People decide, “I want to be somebody. I want to make a contribution. I want to leave my mark here.” Then different factors contribute to how you will do that.
    Faith Ringgold (b. 1934)

    No other creative field is as closed to those who are not white and male as is the visual arts. After I decided to be an artist, the first thing that I had to believe was that I, a black woman, could penetrate the art scene, and that, further, I could do so without sacrificing one iota of my blackness or my femaleness or my humanity.
    —Faith Ringgold (b. 1934)

    I have loved her all my youth,
    But now old, as you see;
    Love likes not the falling fruit
    From the withered tree.
    Know that love is a careless child
    And forgets promise past;
    He is blind, he is deaf when he list
    And in faith never fast.
    Sir Walter Raleigh (1552?–1618)
