Love
by Toni Morrison

Hate does that. Burns off everything but itself, so whatever your grievance is, your face looks just like your enemy's.

and how thin human imagination became trying to achieve it.

Don't ever think I fell for you, or fell over you. I didn't fall in love, I rose in it.

Tar Baby
by Toni Morrison

At some point in life the world's beauty becomes enough. You don't need to photograph, paint or even remember it. It is enough. No record of it needs to be kept and you don't need someone to share it with or tell it to. When that happens — that letting go — you let go because you can.

by Toni Morrison

You wanna fly, you got to give up the shit that weighs you down.

Sula
by Toni Morrison

Like any artist without an art form, she became dangerous.

The Bluest Eye
by Toni Morrison

Beauty was not simply something to behold; it was something one could do.
