“When Enebeli Okwara sent his girl out in the world, he did not know what the world did to daughters. He did not know how quickly it would wick the dew off her, how she would be returned to him hollowed out, relieved of her better parts.”

“There is this thing that distance does where it subtracts warm and context and history and each finds that they are arguing with a stranger.”
Lesley Nneka Arimah, What It Means When a Man Falls from the Sky

“You shouldn’t be stopping a person from feeling natural hardships. That’s what it means to be human.”
