It lies in the collective and institutional power to make change, at least as much as with the individual will to change. It also lies in the absolute moral imperative to break the childish, deadly circularity of centuries of blindness to the shimmering brilliance of our common, ordinary humanity."

Patricia J. Williams, Seeing a Color-Blind Future: The Paradox of Race (1997)

New Quoatation

E. M. Delafield, General Impressions (1933)

New Quoatation

"Nineteen may be optimistic — but it suffers so!"

May Christie, Hearts Afire (1926)

New Quoatation

"Only ways you can keep folks hating is to keep them apart and separated from each other."

Margaret Walker, Jubilee (1966)

New Quoatation

"My mom says I have to be more positive, and I say life has to be more positive too or it’s just not going to work."

Jane Wagner, My Life, So Far: By Edith Ann (1994)
