James Baldwin (1924-1987)) -

Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them. James Baldwin

People pay for what they do, and still more for what they have allowed themselves to become. And they pay for it very simply; by the lives they lead.-James Baldwin (1924-1987)

It is a great shock at the age of five or six to find that in a world of Gary Coopers you are the Indian. -James Baldwin (1924-1987), speech, Feb. 17, 1965, Cambridge Union, Cambridge University, England. New YorkTimes Magazine (Mar. 7, 1965).)

An identity would seem to be arrived at by the way in which the person faces and uses his experience. -James Baldwin (1924-1987), "No Name in the Street," The Price Of The Ticket (1972, repr. 1985).)
