“Unbought and Unbossed”

My favorite quotation is short and sweet. It makes me smile and inspires me. When Shirley Chisholm ran for Congress in 1968, her campaign slogan was “Unbought and Unbossed.” She ran to represent the people in her district and declared herself independent from the influence of the party bosses that sought to control her. She was, unapologetically, her own “boss,” and I admire her intelligence, strength and perseverance.
