EEW Magazine Profiles In Black History Series: Booker T. Washington's Top 5 quotes

By EEW Magazine // Proiles In Black History Series

Share Booker Taliaferro Washington was one of the most prominent African American figures of the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

He is well known for founding the Tuskegee Normal and Industrial institute in 1881 (currently known as Tuskegee University).

Booker T. Washington believed that education and entrepreneurship was the best way to achieve equality, and worked together with white philanthropists to raise funds to establish and operate schools for the progression of blacks in the South.

Washington wrote 14 books, and his autobiography Up from Slavery is still widely read today. His work has greatly assisted African Americans in achieving higher education and financial power.

And today we bring you 5 of his greatest quotes:

#1 Success is to be measured not so much by the position that one has reached in life as by the obstacles which he has overcome.

#2 If you want to lift yourself up, lift someone else up.

#3 Excellence is to do a common thing in an uncommon way.

#4 Associate yourself with people of good quality, for it is better to be alone than in bad company.

#5 Nothing ever comes to one, that is worth having, except as a result of hard work.
