More From Saul Williams
- "My father’s a preacher, my mother’s a teacher, thus I rhyme."
- "Why shouldn’t rap be esoteric, able to take in current events, history and criticism? I guess it’s this old idea of containment – that rappers, because they’re black, can’t and shouldn’t aspire to look outside the ghetto for influence."
- "I think we fool ourselves and really negate a great deal of history if we think that the oral history of poetry is shorter than the written history of poetry. It’s not true. Poetry has a longer oral tradition than it does written."
More In Peace
- "It is not uncommon in modern times to see governments straining every nerve to keep the peace, and the people whom they represent, with patriotic enthusiasm and resentment over real or fancied wrongs, urging them forward to war."― Elihu Root
- "We can hope that men will understand that the interest of all are the same, that hope lies in cooperation. We can then perhaps keep PEACE."― Alva Myrdal
- "Making peace, I have found, is much harder than making war."― Gerry Adams
