Gayl Jones

There are things that a woman sings, and only a woman knows the full meaning. You may sing for men as well as for women, but only a woman knows your full meaning. I am not a feminista. I only think a woman should be true to who she believes herself to be. Or who she wants herself to be. Or who she imagines herself to be. I don't know what I mean, or whether I'm true myself to any of that. I don't think there are many of us who are true to our possibilities.More Gayl Jones quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
When you tell a story you automatically talk about traditions, but they're never separate from the people, the human implications. You're talking about your connections as a human being.More Gayl Jones quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I learned to write by listening to people talk. I still feel that the best of my writing comes from having heard rather than having read.More Gayl Jones quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
My great-grandmama told my grandmama the part she lived through that my grandmama didn't live through and my grandmama told my mama what they both lived through and my mama told me what they all lived through and we were suppose to pass it down like that from generation to generation so we'd never forget.More Gayl Jones quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I believe that all literatures can have political uses and misuses. Sometimes politics can enhance, sometimes it can get in the way of imaginative literature. . . . I'm not sure one can be a creative writer and a politician -- not a "good" politician.More Gayl Jones quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
