Nadine Gordimer
“The caged eagle become a metaphor for all forms of isolation, the ultimate in imprisonment. A zoo is prison.”
Nadine Gordimer, Get a Life

Dionne Brand
“so don’t tell me how love will rescue me, I was carnivorous about love, I ate love to the ankles, my thighs are gnawed with love still and yet I cannot have loved, since living was all I could do and for that, I was caged in bone spur endlessly”
Dionne Brand, Ossuaries

Chinelo Okparanta
“Maybe love was some combination of friendship and infatuation. A deeply felt affection accompanied by a certain sort of awe. And by gratitude. And by a desire for a lifetime of togetherness.”
Chinelo Okparanta, Under the Udala Trees

Ntozake Shange
“somebody/ anybody
sing a black girl's song
bring her out
to know herself
to know you
but sing her rhythms
carin/ struggle/ hard times
sing her song of life
she's been dead so long
closed in silence so long
she doesn't know the sound
of her own voice
her infinite beauty
she's half-notes scattered
without rhythm/ no tune
sing her sighs
sing the song of her possibilities
sing a righteous gospel
let her be born
let her be born
& handled warmly.”
Ntozake Shange, For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide / When the Rainbow Is Enuf

Toni Morrison
“You been gone too long, Sula.

Not too long, but maybe too far.”
Toni Morrison, Sula
