“People always say that I didn’t give up my seat because I was tired but that isn’t true. I was not tired physically or no more tired than I usually was at the end of the working day. I was not old, although some people have an image of me as being old then. I was 42. No, the only tired I was, was tired of giving in.” — Rosa Parks, “My Story” (1992)
