Marcus Garvey

Africa for the Africans… at home and abroad!
Marcus Garvey

God and Nature first made us what we are, and then out of our own created genius we make ourselves what we want to be. Follow always that great law. Let the sky and God be our limit and Eternity our measurement.
Marcus Garvey

The Black skin is not a badge of shame, but rather a glorious symbol of national greatness.
Marcus Garvey

The whole world is run on bluff.
Marcus Garvey

A people without the knowledge of their past history, origin and culture is like a tree without roots.
Marcus Garvey

A reading man and woman is a ready man and woman, but a writing man and woman is exact.
Marcus Garvey

Chance has never yet satisfied the hope of a suffering people.
Marcus Garvey

I have no desire to take all black people back to Africa; there are blacks who are no good here and will likewise be no good there.
Marcus Garvey

I like honesty and fair play.
Marcus Garvey

I regard the Klan, the Anglo-Saxon clubs and White American societies, as far as the Negro is concerned, as better friends of the race than all other groups of hypocritical whites put together.
Marcus Garvey

If you have no confidence in self, you are twice defeated in the race of life.
Marcus Garvey

Look for me in the whirlwind or the storm.
Marcus Garvey

Look to Africa, for there a king will be crowned.
Marcus Garvey

Our success educationally, industrially and politically is based upon the protection of a nation founded by ourselves. And the nation can be nowhere else but in Africa.
Marcus Garvey

There shall be no solution to this race problem until you, yourselves, strike the blow for liberty.
Marcus Garvey

Up, you mighty race, accomplish what you will.
Marcus Garvey

Whatsoever things common to man, that man has done, man can do.
Marcus Garvey

With confidence, you have won before you have started.
Marcus Garvey

You may call me a Klansman if you will, but, potentially, every white man is a Klansman, as far as the Negro in competition with whites socially, economically and politically is concerned, and there is no use lying.
Marcus Garvey

Progress is the attraction that moves humanity.
Marcus Garvey

Liberate the minds of men and ultimately you will liberate the bodies of men.
Marcus Garvey

Men who are in earnest are not afraid of consequences.
Marcus Garvey

Emancipate yourselves from mental slavery, none but ourselves can free our minds!
Marcus Garvey

I know no national boundary where the Negro is concerned. The whole world is my province until Africa is free.
Marcus Garvey

There is no force like success, and that is why the individual makes all effort to surround himself throughout life with the evidence of it; as of the individual, so should it be of the nation.
Marcus Garvey

The enemies are not so much from without as from within the race.
Marcus Garvey

Real men laugh at opposition; real men smile when enemies appear.
Marcus Garvey

Marcus Garvey does not give a snap for anything human but justice, and that which is based upon righteousness.
Marcus Garvey

We welcome the opposition of the world, because we are determined to see the battle through. Africa’s battle-cry is not yet heard.
Marcus Garvey

If the enemy could only know that Marcus Garvey is but a John the Baptist in the wilderness, that a greater and more dangerous Marcus Garvey is yet to appear, the Garvey with whom you will have to reckon for the injustice of the present generation.
Marcus Garvey

This hour we are stretching forth our hands with the desire to teach the world the true principles of mercy and justice.
Marcus Garvey

We see a new Ethiopia, a new Africa, stretching her hands of influence throughout the world, teaching man the way of life and peace, The Way to God.
Marcus Garvey

Ethiopia shall once more arise from the ashes of material ruin to the heights of temporal glory.
Marcus Garvey

Glorious shall be the battle when the time comes to fight for our people and our race.
Marcus Garvey

Africa has become the big game of the nation hunters. Today, Africa looms as the greatest commercial, industrial and political prize in the world.
