Sir Sidney Poitier, KBE, is a Bahamian-American actor, film director, author and diplomat... (wikipedia)
I lived in a country where I couldn't live where I wanted to live. I lived in a country where I couldn't go where I wanted to eat. I lived in a country where I couldn't get a job, except for those put aside for people of my colour or caste.
To simply wake up every morning a better person than when I went to bed.
So it's been kind of a long road, but it was a good journey altogether.
So I had to be careful. I recognized the responsibility that, whether I liked it or not, I had to accept whatever the obligation was. That was to behave in a manner, to carry myself in such a professional way, as if there ever is a reflection, it's a positive one.
If I'm remembered for having done a few good things, and if my presence here has sparked some good energies, that's plenty.
