„Education is our passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to the people who prepare for it today.“

— Malcolm X
Context: Education is an important element in the struggle for human rights. It is the means to help our children and our people rediscover their identity and thereby increase their self respect. Education is our passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs only to the people who prepare for it today. Speech at Founding Rally of the Organization of Afro-American Unity (28 June 1964), as quoted in By Any Means Necessary (1970)

„I could spend the rest of my life reading, just satisfying my curiosity“

— Malcolm X
Context: I told the Englishman that my alma mater was books, a good library. Every time I catch a plane, I have with me a book that I want to read—and that’s a lot of books these days. If I weren’t out here every day battling the white man, I could spend the rest of my life reading, just satisfying my curiosity—because you can hardly mention anything I’m not curious about. [http://www.uri.edu/library/inscriptions/almamater.html Chapter 11, paragraph 59]

„The future belongs to those who prepare for it today.“

— Malcolm X, Malcolm X, Black Liberation, and the Road to Workers' Power
