If we must die— oh, let us nobly die,
So that our precious blood may not be shed
In vain; then even the monsters we defy
Shall be constrained to honor us though dead!

Claude McKay died May 22, 1948.


Hold fast to dreams 
For if dreams die 
Life is a broken-winged bird 
That cannot fly.

Langston Hughes died May 22, 1967.
