Inspiring Quotes and Words of Wisdom

Amos Lassen

 In celebration of the 50th anniversary of the first Pride Parade,  Caitlyn McNeill’s “Pride: A Collection of Quotes”  brings us inspiring words of wisdom on loving ourselves as we truly are. 
“These thoughtfully selected quotations are the perfect way to honor the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall riots and the first Pride parade.” They are taken from throughout history and come from a variety of voices and celebrate everything the LGBT community has achieved, “looking at inclusivity across the board and reminding us that love is one of the world’s greatest powers.”

“There has never been a better collection of quotes about pride–from around the world, throughout history, and from a variety of people from all walks of life. From Mayor Pete to Walt Whitman and Anaïs Nin; from Dolly Parton, Lena Waithe, and Tan France to Marsha P. Johnson, David Jay, and Phyllis Lyon and Del Martin (and activists from Taiwan, Palestine, the Philippines, Belgium, Uganda, India, and more), this is an amazing compendium of quoted material on everything from personal pride to global struggle, and a perfect gift for anyone who wants to learn about and celebrate pride, whether it’s this month or any time throughout the year.”

Quotes include: 
“We, the people, declare today that the most evident of truths—that all of us are created equal—is the star that guides us still; just as it guided our forebears through Seneca Falls, and Selma, and Stonewall.” —Barack Obama
“I’ve never been interested in being invisible and erased.” —Laverne Cox
“To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.” —Ralph Waldo Emerson
