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.

Cooperation… Let’s Do It

Marcus Garvey said: “It is so hard, so difficult to find men who will stick to a purpose … and if there is a race that needs such men in the world today, God Almighty knows it is the race for which I am a member… so long as I am in the race and since I have the sense and judgment enough to know what affects the race affects me, it is my duty to help the race clear itself of those things that affect us in common.”

Today let’s be motivated to cooperating as a race and a people. A little motivation is all we need.
