“Baggage means no matter how far you go, no matter how many times you immigrate, there are countries in you you’ll never leave”
Elaine Castillo, America Is Not the Heart

“You've been foreign all your life. When you finally leave, all you're hoping for is a more bearable kind of foreignness.”
Elaine Castillo, America Is Not the Heart

“You already know that the first thing that makes you foreign to a place is to be born poor in it; you don't need to emigrate to America to feel what you already felt when you were ten, looking up at the rickety concrete roof above your head and knowing that one more bad typhoon would bring it down to crush your bones and the bones of all your siblings sleeping next to you; or selling fruit by the side of the road to people who made sure to never really look at you, made sure not to touch your hands when they put the money in it. You've been foreign all your life. When you finally leave, all you're hoping for is a more bearable kind of foreignness.”
Elaine Castillo, America Is Not the Heart
