Gayl Jones

A lot of people they don’t know that Africans even named the stars, that different peoples, different so-called native peoples, have their own names for the stars, and have star charts just as accurate as the Chinese star charts, which are more ancient than the European star charts or even the Arabic ones or the star charts of the New World civilizations. Everybody’s got their own cosmology. Everybody’s got their own description of the universe.More Gayl Jones quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
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]
