some thoughts to mull over…

Saturday, March 28, 2009

there have been some quotes from various authors that i’ve read recently that have made me pause and step back:

“I found God in myself and I loved her fiercely” –ntozake shange

“I love America more than any other country in this world, and, exactly for this reason, I insist on the right to criticize her perpetually.” — james baldwin

“When we hold each other, in the darkness, it doesn’t make the darkness go away. The bad things are still out there. The nightmares still walking. When we hold each other we feel not safe, but better. “It’s all right” we whisper, “I’m here, I love you.” and we lie: “I’ll never leave you.” For just a moment or two the darkness doesn’t seem so bad.” —  Hellblazer comic #27
