“Running, you should know, is a kind of stillness.”
Tiphanie Yanique, How to Escape from a Leper Colony

“The idea that people who guarded you could also be the people that you needed guarding from was nothing anyone should have to learn.”
Tiphanie Yanique, Land of Love and Drowning

“Despite her light skin, despite the obviousness that more of her ancestors had owned slaves than had been them, how could she lose? We're open like that. We like to know that people love us; we don't care how they look.”
Tiphanie Yanique, How to Escape from a Leper Colony
