Great Ideals Know No Nationality

Marcus Garvey said: “All intelligent people know that one’s nationality has nothing to do with great ideals and principles. If because I am a Jamaican the negro should not accept the principle of race rights and liberty or the ideal of a free and independent race; then you may as well say that because Jesus was a Nazarene the outside world should not accept His Doctrine of Christianity, because he was an ‘alien.’ … Again, I say, great principles, great ideals know no nationality.”

Today, let’s be motivated to accepting the good in everyone, despite their nationality. A little motivation is all we need.
