Quotes by Eli Clare  (?)

“Laugh and cry and tell stories. Sad stories about bodies stolen, bodies no longer here. Enraging stories about the false images, devastating lies, untold violence. Bold, brash stories about reclaiming our bodies and changing the world.”
Eli Clare, Exile and Pride: Disability, Queerness, and Liberation

“The body as home, but only if it is understood that bodies are never singular, but rather haunted, strengthened, underscored by countless other bodies.”
Eli Clare, Exile and Pride: Disability, Queerness, and Liberation

“Let me remind all of us--disabled and nondisabled--that every time we defend our intelligence, we come close to disowning intellectually disabled people. We imply that it might be okay to exclude, devalue, and institutionalize people who actually live with body-mind conditions that impact the ways they think, understand, and process information.

The only way out of this trap is to move toward, not away from, intellectually disabled people, to practice active solidarity.”
Eli Clare, Brilliant Imperfection: Grappling with Cure
