“Maybe we have only a finite amount of love to give. We're born with our portion, and if we love and are not loved enough in return, it's depleted.”
Ayana Mathis, The Twelve Tribes of Hattie

“I try to find the beauty in things. On dark days I sit in my armchair looking at clouds and I am awed at how rain is made.”
Ayana Mathis, The Twelve Tribes of Hattie

“...Hattie wanted to give her babies names that weren't already chiseled on a headstone in the family plots in Georgia, so she gave them names of promise and of hope, reaching-forward names, not looking-back ones.”
Ayana Mathis, The Twelve Tribes of Hattie
