Francis J. Grimke Quotes (5 quotes)
“Those people who think they know everything are a great annoyance to those of us who do.”
As quoted in The Mammoth Book of Zingers, Quips, and One-Liners (2004) edited by Geoff Tibballs, p. 299
“Life is one big road with lots of signs.
So when you riding through the ruts, don't complicate your mind.
Flee from hate, mischief and jealousy.
Don't bury your thoughts, put your vision to reality.
Wake Up and Live!”
Wake Up and Live! on Survival (1979) - Song Lyrics
