Says you’re after some new quotes? How about Max Romeo’s ‘Warning, warning’?

Givin ‘out my warning!

Now you rich people listen to me,
Weep and wail over the miseries,
That are coming; coming up on you.

You riches have rotted away,
And your clothes have been eaten by moth.
Your gold and silver, is covered with rust,
And this rust will be witness against you.
And eat up your flesh like fire,
You have piled up your riches, in these last days.

But heads a go roll down Sandy Gully, one of these days.
Heads a go roll down Sandy Gully, that’s what Marcus Garvey says.

Your life here on earth have been filled,
With luxury and pleasure.
You have made yourself fat, for the day of slaugther.
You’ve not paid the men that work in your fields,
The cries of those that gather your crops,
have reached the ears of Jah, Jah almighty.

Heads a go roll down Sandy Gully, one of these days.
Heads a go roll down Sandy Gully, that’s what marcus Garvey.

Dog up a Beverly Hills,
A eat T-bone steak an’drink cornflakes.
While poor people, in the ghetto,
A rake an’scrape to get a cake.

Be patient, my brother, be patient,
As a farmer is patient, as he waits for the autumn,
And the spring rains to water his crops.
You also must be patient, and keep your hopes up high,
Happy are those greatest desire, is to do what Jah Jah require.

Heads a go roll down Sandy Gully, one of these days.
Heads a go roll down Sandy Gully, that’s what Marcus Garvey says.
Bald head a go roll down Sandy Gully, one of these days.
Heads a go roll down Sandy Gully, that’s what Marcus Garvey.

I say; you look, you look, you look and you can’t see…
I said; you listen, you listen, you listen, you listen, and you can’t hear…

Envelope in the post. I am expecting generous treatment in view of my speed 😊

Definitely (at the risk of sounding like a 3 year old) need a Rightnet badge and those coasters would look very nice in place of my somewhat battered Zu Audio coasters. Postcards look cool too.

Just got a great quote in by email (thanks Ruth) ...

“The law, in its majestic equality, forbids rich and poor alike to sleep under bridges, to beg in the streets, and to steal their bread.”

It’s from Anatole France who I hadn’t come across before: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anatole_France

I have a small collection going on my notice board which includes the Anatole France quote. (Who I hadn’t heard of either - but was impressed to learn the church banned EVERYTHING he wrote).

I also have :

“Of all the preposterous assumptions of humanity, nothing exceeds the criticisms made of the habits of the poor by the well-housed, well-warmed and well-fed”

Herman Melville.

(I’d like to pretend I know that one because I’m well read. But I actually heard it because it was the opening quote for an episode of Criminal Minds).

I also have :

“No amount of cajolery can eradicate from my heart a deep burning hatred for the Tory party…so far as I am concerned they are lower than vermin”.

Aneurin Bevin

But I think that’s a little too party political…

The Herman Melville one’s a good one though.

OMG, more of those, please!


Mine:
“Power concedes nothing without a demand. It never did and it never will. Find out just what any people will quietly submit to and you have found out the exact measure of injustice and wrong which will be imposed upon them, and these will continue till they are resisted with either words or blows, or with both. The limits of tyrants are prescribed by the endurance of those whom they oppress.”

― Frederick Douglass

I miss Criminal Minds. Maybe the real reason it ended was they finally ran out of quotes - two an episode for that many series…

The last quote in my current collection - which again wouldn’t work for this purpose but does cheer me up is:

“I have never made but one prayer to God, a very short one: ‘O Lord make my enemies ridiculous.‘And God granted it.”

Voltaire.

It matches how I feel when I read through an appeal bundle.

A present arrived in the post over the weekend! The office printer is now kitted out with a shiny new “Rightsnet” sticker, my mug has a coaster with a thought provoking quote and a colleagues lanyard now has a new badge. Not sure what to do with the rest though!

My envelope was dispathed on Friday. I’ll be happy with a couple of stickers so you can spread the love to all and sundry.
