Quote #751 - Get Woke #GetWoke

28 Nov, 2016

"Look at a stone cutter hammering away at his rock, perhaps a hundred times without as much as a crack showing in it. Yet at the 101st blow, it will split in two, and I know it was not the last blow that did it, but all that had gone before."

Jacob A. Riis

"We anticipate no small amoount of misconception, misrepresentation, and ridicule; but we shall use every instrumentality within our power to effect our object."

Elizabeth Cady Stanton

"Perseverance is a great element of success. If you only knock long enough and loud enough at the gate, you are sure to wake up somebody."

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Gotta get up
Gotta get moving
Gotta wake up
Gotta get woke

Gotta do something
To get woke
Get you woke
Get 'em all woke

Wake up

We got deplorable acts you gotta keep watch for
We got alarms and sirens shrieking day and night
We got young 'uns screaming, old 'uns crying,
All 'uns trembling for what's ahead

We got pots 'a coffee and bottles of water
Apples and donuts
Walls of computers
To keep the troops going

We cannot afford to waste a moment
Come on, darlin'
Put on your sturdiest boots
Pull back your hair

Get woke
Be woke
Stay woke

There is no other way
But then, there never was
