#3. The SNCC base of operation, at the corner of Jackson and High Streets, was in the heart of the black community in Montgomery. I don't remember too much else about the city, but I'll always remember that corner. There were hundreds of young people behind police barricades of some sort. Lots of college students, some white, from up North, and some local black folks and college students. The whole Selma-to-Montgomery push, and this ancillary thrust by SNCC in Montgomery, was because on the other side of that barricade there were white folks who had shown they would stop at nothing, including violence, to protect white supremacy. - Author: Junius Williams
Selma To Montgomery quotes by Junius Williams

#9. Another bug hunt, boys. This one is a little different, as you know. Since they still hold prisoners of ours, we can't use a nova bomb on Klendathu --- so this time we go down, stand on it, hold it, take it away from them. The boat won't be down to retrieve us, instead it'll fetch more ammo and rations. If you're taken prisoner, keep your chin up and follow the rules --- because you've got the whole outfit behind you, you've got the whole Federation behind you; we'll come and get you. That's what the boys from the Swamp Fox and the Montgomery have been depending on. Those who are still alive are waiting, knowing that we will show up. And here we are. Now we go get 'em. - Author: Robert A. Heinlein
Selma To Montgomery quotes by Robert A. Heinlein

Selma To Montgomery quotes by Ryan Montgomery
#11. Preaching is the primary means of growth for the local church.

Selma To Montgomery quotes by James Montgomery Boice
#12. Next to a mother she wanted a quiet place where she could be alone when she wanted to be; to listen to the wind telling her strange tales, or hold the big spotted shell that murmured of the sea to her ear, or talk to the roses in the garden. - Author: L.M. Montgomery
Selma To Montgomery quotes by L.M. Montgomery
#13. He walked jauntily away, being hungry, and the unfortunate Matthew was left to do that which was harder for him than bearding a lion in its den - walk up to a girl - a strange girl - an orphan girl - and demand of her why she wasn't a boy. - Author: L.M. Montgomery
Selma To Montgomery quotes by L.M. Montgomery
#14. On that cloudy afternoon in March, Judge Carter had convicted more than Martin Luther King, Jr., Case No. 7399; he had convicted every Negro in Montgomery. It is no wonder that the movement couldn't be stopped. It was too large to be stopped. Its links were too well bound together in a powerfully effective chain. There is amazing power in unity. Where there is true unity, every effort to disunite only serves to strengthen the unity. What the opposition failed to see was that our mutual sufferings had wrapped us all in a single garment of destiny. What happened to one happened to all. - Author: Martin Luther King, Jr.

#19. My mother did play classical piano, not that well. And actually, my father sang with the big bands - he sang with Bob Crosby's band - but he had to give up show business when his father died. He had to come back to Montgomery and take over the furniture store. - Author: Toni Tennille
Selma To Montgomery quotes by Toni Tennille
#20. Well it was a lot fun with John Boy and stuff, but I always knew that I wanted to be on the front of the stage even when I was playing drums. I don't have anything against John Boy, I just wanted to be on the front of the stage. - Author: Eddie Montgomery

#21. Language makes it possible for a child to incorporate his parents' verbal prohibitions, to make them part of himself ... We don't speak of a conscience yet in the child who is just acquiring language, but we can see very clearly how language plays an indispensable role in the formation of conscience. In fact, the moral achievement of man, the whole complex of factors that go into the organization of conscience is very largely based upon language. - Author: Selma Fraiberg
Selma To Montgomery quotes by Selma Fraiberg
#22. A two-year-old can be taught to curb his aggressions completely if the parents employ strong enough methods, but the achievement of such control at an early age may be bought at a price which few parents today would be willing to pay. The slow education for control demands much more parental time and patience at the beginning, but the child who learns control in this way will be the child who acquires healthy self-discipline later. - Author: Selma Fraiberg
Selma To Montgomery quotes by Selma Fraiberg

Selma To Montgomery quotes by L.M. Montgomery
#26. None of us ever do," said Mrs. Allan with a sigh. "But then, Anne, you know what Lowell says, 'Not failure but low aim is crime.' We must have ideals and try to live up to them, even if we never quite succeed. Life would be a sorry business without them. With them it's grand and great. Hold fast to your ideals, Anne. - Author: L.M. Montgomery
Selma To Montgomery quotes by L.M. Montgomery
#27. The world's theology is easy to define.
It is the view that human beings are basically good,
that no one is really lost,
that belief in Jesus Christ is not necessary for salvation. - Author: James Montgomery Boice
Selma To Montgomery quotes by James Montgomery Boice
#28. I wonder," said Miss Oliver, "if humanity will be any happier because of aeroplanes.

"After - Author: L.M. Montgomery

And, as Uncle Pippin said, while the truth was all right, in its place, there was no sense in pouring out great gobs of it around where it wasn't wanted. To Aunt Becky, however, tact and diplomacy and discretion, never to mention any consideration for any one's feelings, were things unknown. - Author: L.M. Montgomery

Selma To Montgomery quotes by L.M. Montgomery
#34. We must remember when we speak of the "negativism" of the toddler that this is also the child who is intoxicated with the discoveries of the second year, a joyful child who is firmly bound to his parents and his new-found world through ties of love. The so-called negativism is one of the aspects of this development, but under ordinary circumstances it does not become anarchy. It's a kind of declaration of independence, but there is no intention to unseat the government. - Author: Selma Fraiberg
Selma To Montgomery quotes by Selma Fraiberg
#35.

He had made up his mind, also, that his future must be worthy of its goddess. ...

Montgomery
Selma To Montgomery quotes by L.M. Montgomery
#38. Can you expect me to be just when you've just killed me? Oh, I know I asked for it
I know it's good for me. Horrible things always are good for you, I suppose. After you've been killed a few times you don't mind it. But the first time one does
squirm. Go away, Dean. Don't come back for a week at least. The funeral will be over then."
"Don't you believe I know what this means to you, Star?" asked Dean pityingly.
