“The great art of life is sensation, to feel that we exist, even in pain.”~Lord Byron

“Be as a bird perched on a frail branch that she feels bending beneath her, still she sings away all the same, knowing she has wings.”~Victor Hugo

When I dare to be powerful – to use my strength in the service of my vision, then it becomes less and less important whether I am afraid.
~Audre Lorde

I write entirely to find out what I’m thinking, what I’m looking at, what I see and what it means. What I want and what I fear.
Joan Didion (1934 – )
“The truth is like the sun: when it comes up nobody can block it out or hide it. I hope that this book and my story will, in a small way, help that sun to keep shining”.
– Malalai Joya

“Deal with yourself as individual worthy of respect and make everyone else deal with you the same way.”
~Nikki Giovanni
“We write to taste life twice, in the moment and in retrospect.”
— Anaïs Nin

~June Jordan

Yes, writing is almost always too hard, except for those breathtaking times when it isn’t, except for those almost ineluctable moments of deliverance when the lair’s lamps burn bright, and the air carries a scent, and through the silence one hears the chitterings of language. Writing is almost always too hard, except when the story blows in. — Beth Kephart

“Let there be everywhere our voices, our eyes, our thoughts, our love, our action, breathing hope and victory.”
~Sonia Sanchez

“If I didn’t define myself for myself, I would be crunched into other people’s fantasies for me and eaten alive.”

Audre Lorde quote

Audre Lorde quote
