Quotations

Here’s a compilation of thoughts from lots of insightful people.  We’re using a quote from Courtney E. Martin’s article A Couple of Truths About Adulthood That No One Tells You from On Being as a starting example.

“Even the adults I’ve met who appeared to have their shit together don’t. In fact, I think the inverse may be true: The more people appear to have their shit together, the more reliably you can predict that they have a closet somewhere, shielded from public view, bursting with all the messiness of life.”  Courtney E. Martin

Alice Walker

“And so our mothers and grandmothers have, more often than not anonymously, handed on the creative spark, the seed of the flower they themselves never hoped to see — or like a sealed letter they could not plainly read.”

“Writing saved me from the sin and inconvenience of violence.”

“How simple a thing it seems to me that to know ourselves as we are, we must know our mothers’ names.”
