“Qui ose encore aimer ce pays/ et le dire?”
Evelyne Trouillot
tags: haiti

“I feel the rage and hatred take over my sadness and settle into righteous anger. At the moment my anger is like calm water, a light breeze with no protection. But do we have any other choice than to accept the showers and the torrential rains, the earthquakes, when everything changes place and season?”
Evelyne Trouillot, The Infamous Rosalie

“Never explain to a man being whipped how to avoid blows. Every one learns to protect the body part most sensitive to him, his most vital part. You'll see all sorts of ruses that we slaves invent to try to survive this horror. Some will seem ridiculous, others barbaric, but who can really judge? A human being will do whatever he needs to do to make sure the breath that fills his voice belongs to him. It's his right.”
Evelyne Trouillot, The Infamous Rosalie
