I can only be the best version of myself and understand that the only way that we as a people can heal is to understand that the next person’s journey may not be your own, but it doesn’t mean that you have to marginalize them in any way.
Octavia Spencer, 1970 –
Through the Neo-Latin adjective marginalis (belonging to the boundary or outer edge) from the Latin noun margo, marginis (border, edge) and the Latin adjectival suffix -alis (belonging to, characteristic of) plus the Latinized Greek suffix idzo (make).
