Quote: Booker T Washington

“I have learned that success is to be measured not so much by the position that one has reached in life as by the obstacles which one has overcome while trying to succeed.”

- Booker Taliaferro Washington

(African-American educator, author, orator and political leader, 1856 - 1915.  Himself born in slavery, he was the sone of a white father and slave mother, eventually becoming  the representative of the last generation of black leaders born in slavery.)
