Nina Turner. Listen to her speech in DC. Google that shit. "So sisters and brothers, I want to leave you with these three things:"

1. "Number one, the creator of this great universe has given us two hands, one to reach forward and one to reach back, lifting as we climb."

2. "Number two, and most importantly, we can't ask other folks to do more for us than we are willing to do for ourselves."

3. "And lastly in the words of my grandmother, who was hailed from the South, born in 1913, grandma could not read or write, but she could count her money...When I asked grandma what does it take to be successful in life she said all you need are these three bones: the wishbone, the jawbone and the backbone."
