Quotes by Kwame Mbalia  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“Can’t live your life with grief whispering in your ear, pulling you this way and that. But you can’t shove it in a drawer deep inside yourself, neither. Naw, you got to sit grief down and talk to it. Listen to it. Come to terms with it. Pain is the body’s way of saying it’s healing, so you gotta let it heal.”
Kwame Mbalia, Tristan Strong Punches a Hole in the Sky

“Everybody has a story, Nana used to say when I was younger. Listen to it, and they’ll be friendly. Engage with it, and they’ll be your friend.”
Kwame Mbalia, Tristan Strong Punches a Hole in the Sky

“My fists were everywhere.

Black fists in black gloves delivering black power two jabs at a time.”
Kwame Mbalia, Tristan Strong Punches a Hole in the Sky
