At the banquet table of nature, there are no reserved seats. You get what you can take, and you keep what you can hold. If you can’t take anything, you won’t get anything, and if you can’t hold anything, you won’t keep anything. And you can’t take anything without organization.

A. Phillip Randolph: President, Brotherhood of Sleeping Car Porters.
A bust of Randolph, with this quote, is in Union Station here in Washington, DC, in front of the Starbucks.
