“Sometimes the times were dark and the outlook was lonesome, but where there is a will there is a way. I pitched in and dug at my work until now I am where I am. It was hard work, though, but with color and sex against me I have achieved success. That is what I tell my people whenever I meet them, that they must not be discouraged but work ahead until the world is bound to respect them for what they have accomplished." - Edmonia Lewis
