George W. Carver wrote in A Brief Sketch of My Life, 1922: "I would never allow anyone to give me money, no difference how badly I needed it. I wanted literally to earn my living."
Booker T. Washington stated: "Anyone can seek a job, but it requires a person of rare ability to create a job ... What we should do in our schools is to turn out fewer job seekers and more job creators."
