“I thank the dark Virgin, morena like me... There are many who will tell you that the dark-skinned girls, las morenitas, have got no chance. But when Iwas a girl, I noted the Virgen de Guadalupe, her with the important job of taking care of all the pueblitos, and standing in every home with candles and all the respect, and her own day of Guadalupe with people crawling across zócalo and up the cathedral steps on raw knees and singing themselves ronca all night long”
Donna M. Gershten, Kissing the Virgin's Mouth

“Back in his seat, he said, -Did I tell you not to stay in the sun?- He narrowed his eyes. -You are black as a negra.-”
Donna M. Gershten, Kissing the Virgin's Mouth

“It is easier to read about life than to live it, Even so young I knew that. Even so young I needed a rest from the living.”
Donna M. Gershten, Kissing the Virgin's Mouth
