Quotes Zandra Liked

Gwendolyn Brooks
“Surely--But I am very off from that.
From surely. From indeed. From the decent arrow
that was my clean naivete and my faith.
This morning, men deliver wounds and death.
They will deliver death and wounds tomorrow.
And I doubt all. You. Or a violet.”
Gwendolyn Brooks, The Essential Gwendolyn Brooks
