More of Khadijah's books…
“Warned inert, we could watch ourselves, foolish, lose it all.”
Khadijah Queen, Anodyne

“I've always rejected being understood. To be understood is to prostitute oneself. I prefer to be taken seriously for what I'm not, remaining humanly unknown, with naturalness and all due respect”
Fernando Pessoa, The Book of Disquiet

“To have opinions is to sell out to youself. To have no opinions is to exist. To have every opinion is to be a poet.”
Fernando Pessoa, Libro del desasosiego

“When a woman tells the truth she is creating the possibility for more truth around her.”
Adrienne Rich

“I do not feel inhibited or bound by what I am. That does not mean that I have never had bad scenes relating to being Black and/or a woman, it means that other people’s craziness has not managed to make me crazy.”
Lucille Clifton

“Remember, goals are stars to steer by, not sticks with which to beat ourselves.”
Barbara Smith
