I loved this inspiring book about freedom and courage. 27 novembre 1998
Par Un client - Publié sur
Format: Relié
Quiet Strength, by Rosa Parks is an amazing display of one woman's journey to understanding why. Why she and her people needed to justify themselves. Why she had to sit a certain place on a bus. Why she was so tired. Rosa Parks is grounded in her source of Quiet Strength through her relationship with her Creator - God. This relationship has been reinforced by her family and culture. "Love, not fear must be our guide," Rosa states - I would recommend this book to every human being who has a heart and soul.

Outstanding (and now with a sad epilogue) 2 novembre 2005

Format: Broché
It's amazing: this one courageous woman who simply stood up for her beliefs on December 1, 1955 started one of the largest and most influential civil rights movements in history. This book truly reflects Ms. Parks' in her 'essence.' It is a small collection of her thoughts and experiences. Yet these thoughts convey a very personal and profound impact on anyone reading and meditating on them.

What is sad (as I have noted in my title) is the fact that Ms. Parks recently passed away at age 92, just 9 days before I worte this; her funeral was held today in Detroit. May she rest in peace.

This 1994 book (co-written with Gregory J. Reed) is separated into the following topics: Fear; Defiance; Injustice; Pain; Character; Role Models; Faith; Values; Quiet Strength; Determination; Youth; The Future; and includes both an introductory essay and a chronology of her life.

Here are some quotations from the book:

"When I sat down on the bus the day I was arrested, I was thinking of going home. I had made up my mind quickly about what it was that I had to do. I did not think of being physically tired or fearful... All I felt was tired. Tired of being pushed around. Tired of seeing the bad treatment and disrespect of children, women, and men just because of the color of their skin. Tired of Jim Crow laws. Tired of being oppressed. I was just plain tired." (Pg. 17)
"I did not get on the bus to get arrested; I got on the bus to get home. Getting arrested was one of the worst days in my life. It was not a happy experience." (Pg. 23)
"There were other people on the bus whom I knew. But when I was arrested, not one of them came to my defense. I felt very much alone. One man who knew my husband did not even go to my house to tell my husband that I had been arrested." (Pg. 24)
"It is funny to me how people came to believe that the reason I did not move from my seat was that my feet were tired. I did not hear this until I moved to Detroit in 1957." (Pg. 25)
"The church was and is the foundation of our community." (Pg. 31)
Concerning the 1994 robbery of her by a young black man, "I pray for this young man and the conditions in our country that have made him this way. I urge people not to read too much into the attack. I regret that some people, regardless of race, are in such a mental state that they would want to harm an older person." (Pg. 37)
"During the Montgomery bus boycott, we came together and remained unified for 381 days. It has never been done again. The Montgomery boycott became the model for human rights throughout the world." (Pg. 39)
"One thing we need to do is tell young people about our struggles for civil rights... They must be reminded that many people have died so that they can have what they have now." (Pg. 81)
A day with Parks 21 novembre 2008

EE Miller says, "Some things are worth repeating." Parks repeats herself in Quiet Strength. However, it's not redundant. It's more about personality and convictions. The Bible, psalms, hymns---all of these---were important to Parks, and repeatedly she says so.
Quiet Strength, to me, was more of a setting the record straight after having responded with silence to questions about her strength. And she made it clear, (as she probably has a million times to those who have listened) that her strength is from the Lord. For example, Parks stated, "I felt the Lord would give me the strength to endure whatever I had to face. God did away with all my fear. It was time for someone to stand up---or in my case, sit down. I refused to move. It is funny to me how people came to believe that the reason that I did not move from my seat was that my feet were tired. My feet were not tired, but I was tired--tired of unfair treatment."
Again, Parks, in her quiet strength way, provides correction when she said, "I was not the only person involved. I was just one of the many who fought for freedom."
Quiet Strength---in a world of vociferous boasting----is a position/posture/idea worthy of a seat and a spell.

The book was far smaller than I thought it would be, but I did like what I read. I wished it was a little longer.
