Nelson Algren
“these will suffice; who knows but we may be on a slope which leads down to
aboriginal savagery. But of this 1 am sure: if we are to escape, we must not yield a foot upon demanding a fair field and an honest race to all ideas.”
Nelson Algren, Nonconformity

Jim Wallis
“No historic presidential election, no athlete or entertainer’s success, no silent tolerance of one another is enough to create the truth and reconciliation needed to eliminate racial inequality or the presumption of guilt. We’re going to have to collectively acknowledge our failures at dealing with racial bias. People of faith are going to have to raise their voices and take action. Reading this extraordinary new work by Jim Wallis is a very good place to start.”
Jim Wallis, America's Original Sin: Racism, White Privilege, and the Bridge to a New America

Nelson Algren
“Nor all your piety nor all your preaching, nor all your crusades nor all your threats can stop one girl from going on the turf, can stop one mugging, can keep one promising youth from becoming a drug addict, so long as the force that drives the owners of our civilization is away from those who own nothing at all.”
Nelson Algren, Never Come Morning

Nelson Algren
“The city divided by the river is further divided by racial and lingual differences.”
Nelson Algren, Chicago: City on the Make

Samuel Beckett
“VLADIMIR: Well? Shall we go?
ESTRAGON: Yes, let's go.

They do not move.”
Samuel Beckett, Waiting for Godot
