Rosa Parks Quotes

I believe we are here on the planet Earth to live, grow up and do what we can to make this world a better place for all people to enjoy freedom.

“It was not pre-arranged. It just happened that the driver made a demand and I just didn’t feel like obeying his demand. I was quite tired after spending a full day working.”

“I do the very best I can to look upon life with optimism and hope and looking forward to a better day, but I don’t think there is anything such as complete happiness. It pains me that there is still a lot of Klan activity and racism. I think when you say you’re happy, you have everything that you need and everything that you want, and nothing more to wish for. I haven’t reached that stage yet.”

“Stand for something or you will fall for anything. Today’s mighty oak is yesterday’s nut that held its ground.”

“I’m tired of being treated like a second-class citizen.”

“Have you ever been hurt and the place tries to heal a bit, and you just pull the scar off of it over and over again.”

“Each person must live their life as a model for others.”

“Memories of our lives, of our works and our deeds will continue in others.”

“Racism is still with us. But it is up to us to prepare our children for what they have to meet, and, hopefully, we shall overcome.”

“All I was doing was trying to get home from work.”

“Why do you all push us around?”

I am a symbol.

Each person must live their life as a model for others.

“My only concern was to get home after a hard day’s work.”

[F]rom the time I was a child, I tried to protest against disrespectful treatment.
I’d see the bus pass every day… But to me, that was a way of life; we had no choice but to accept what was the custom. The bus was among the first ways I realized there was a black world and a white world.

I have learned over the years that when one’s mind is made up, this diminishes fear; knowing what must be done does away with fear.

I do the very best I can to look upon life with optimism and hope and looking forward to a better day, but I don’t think there is anything such as complete happiness. It pains me that there is still a lot of Klan activity and racism. I think when you say you’re happy, you have everything that you need and everything that you want, and nothing more to wish for. I haven’t reached that stage yet.

Short Quotes by Rosa Parks

No.

I was just trying to let them know how I felt about being treated as a human being.

Our mistreatment was just not right, and I was tired of it.

I knew someone had to take the first step and I made up my mind not to move.

Rosa Parks Quotes about Freedom
“You must never be fearful about what you are doing when it is right.”

I would like to be remembered as a person who wanted to be free… so other people would be also free.

I would like to be known as a person who is concerned about freedom and equality and justice and prosperity for all people.

Whatever my individual desires were to be free, I was not alone. There were many others who felt the same way.

Rosa Parks Quotes on Courage
The only tired I was, was tired of giving in.

I have learned over the years that when one’s mind is made up, this diminishes fear; knowing what must be done does away with fear.

I am leaving this legacy to all of you…to bring peace, justice, equality, love and a fulfillment of what our lives should be. Without vision, the people will perish, and without courage and inspiration, dreams will die – the dream of freedom and peace.

Rosa Parks Quotes about Civil Rights
We didn’t have any civil rights. It was just a matter of survival, of existing from one day to the next. I remember going to sleep as a girl hearing the Klan ride at night and hearing a lynching and being afraid the house would burn down.

“People always say that I didn’t give up my seat because I was tired, but that isn’t true. I was not tired physically, or no more tired than I usually was at the end of a working day. I was not old, although some people have an image of me as being old then. I was forty-two. No, the only tired I was, was tired of giving in.”

People always say that I didn’t give up my seat because I was tired, but that isn’t true. No, the only tired I was, was tired of giving in

Rosa Parks Dignity Quotes
Racial pride and self-dignity were emphasized in my family and community.

Was that I was a person with dignity and self-respect, and I should not set my sights lower than anybody else just because I was black.

Rosa Parks Quotes on Bus
I thought of Emmett Till, and when the bus driver ordered me to move to the back, I just couldn’t move.


Arrest me for sitting on a bus? You may do that.
