“Love has been many things throughout history: the simple comfort of the familiar, having a person to know and being known by that person in return; a connection born of shared experiences, an irrational joy in another's presence; a particular calming influence that one member of the couple may exert on the other, or that they both provide to one another. A combination of all these and myriad other things can go into making one person wish to stay tied to another. Anyone who is not in the couple--that is, everyone else in the world--will not understand precisely how or why it works for two people.”
Annette Gordon-Reed, The Hemingses of Monticello: An American Family

“We would consider the nearly twelve-year-old a child. By the standards of Elizabeth’s day, twelve marked the beginning of the end of childhood for most females, but particularly for female slaves whose status as property made the designation “child” short-lived.”
Annette Gordon-Reed, The Hemingses of Monticello

“History is not just about the things we like or the people we want to love and admire—a fantasy date with our favorite dead person.”
Annette Gordon-Reed, Andrew Johnson
