Simone Weil
“If we know in what way society is unbalanced, we must do what we can to add weight to the lighter scale ... we must have formed a conception of equilibrium and be ever ready to change sides like justice, 'that fugitive from the camp of conquerors'.”
Simone Weil, Gravity and Grace

Stuart Hall
“I have never worked on race and ethnicity as a kind of subcategory; I have always worked on the whole social formation which is racialised”
Stuart Hall

Anita Desai
“Isn't it strange how life won't flow, like a river, but moves in jumps, as if it were held back by locks that are opened now and then to let it jump forwards in a kind of flood?”
Anita Desai

Katherine Mansfield
“The mind I love must have wild places.”
Katherine Mansfield

Alex Haley
“Either you deal with what is the reality, or you can be sure that the reality is going to deal with you.”
Alex Haley
