Toni Morrison

The American writer, Nobel Prize for Literature, 1993
The writing is - I'm free from pain. It's the place where I live; it's where I have control; it's where nobody tells me what to do; it's where my imagination is fecund and I am really at my best. Nothing matters more in the world or in my body or anywhere when I'm writing.More Toni Morrison quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

What it is to live at the edge of towns that cannot bear your company.More Toni Morrison quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

Ruthless in its policing duties, it has no desire or purpose other than maintaining the free range of its own narcotic narcissism, its own exclusivity and dominance. However moribund, it is not without effect for it actively thwarts the intellect, stalls conscience, suppresses human potential. Unreceptive to interrogation, it cannot form or tolerate nMore Toni Morrison quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
they ran in the sunlight, creating their own breeze which pressed their dresses into their damp skin. Reaching a kind of square of four locked trees which promised cooling; they flung themselves into the shade to taste their lip sweat and contemplate the wildness that had come upon them so suddenlyMore Toni Morrison quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
