I had an idea to start each lectures in my typography classes with a quote about typography. .. Having gathered a collection a couple dozen I find (not surprisingly), they're mostly by white men with a smattering by white women... a demographic that doesn't reflect my classes at all.
In the end, nothing matters, does it? But until then... Matter or not, roughly half my students are women and probably close to half come from different backgrounds, many with different first languages, including, that I know of, Farsi and Chinese, so it would be nice.
First, check out Alphabettes.
There are also many good quotes to be found in these talks. I encourage you to share any here that you found worthwhile for your class!

He was close. It shouldn't matter. Unfortunately, in the world we live in, it does.
