Famous quotes containing the word baldwin:

    When one begins to live by habit and by quotation, one has begun to stop living.
    —James Baldwin (1924–1987)

    The making of an American begins at the point where he himself rejects all other ties, any other history, and himself adopts the vesture of his adopted land.
    —James Baldwin (1924–1987)

    Any honest examination of the national life proves how far we are from the standard of human freedom with which we began. The recovery of this standard demands of everyone who loves this country a hard look at himself, for the greatest achievments must begin somewhere, and they always begin with the person. If we are not capable of this examination, we may yet become one of the most distinguished and monumental failures in the history of nations.
    —James Baldwin (1924–1987)
