Early life

W. E. B. Du Bois

Education is that whole system of human training within and without the school house walls, which molds and develops men.

It is a peculiar sensation, this double-consiousness, this sense of always looking at one's self through the eyes of others, of measuring one's soul by the tape of a world that looks on in amused contempt and pity

A little less complaint and whining, and a little more dogged work and manly striving, would do us more credit than a thousand civil rights bills.
