"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 a working day.
I was not old, although some people have an image of me as being old then. I was forty-two. No, the only tired I was, was tired of giving in.
I knew someone had to take the first step and I made up my mind not to move.
Our mistreatment was just not right, and I was tired of it." Rosa Parks
