Yiyun Li
“Once in a while I get an email from someone I have met briefly. "You may not remember me," these emails often begin, the hope to be remembered expressed by the acceptance of having already been forgotten.”
Yiyun Li, Dear Friend, from My Life I Write to You in Your Life

Bernardine Evaristo
“be a person with knowledge not just opinions”
Bernardine Evaristo, Girl, Woman, Other

Damon    Young
“It’s just too fucking much to always have to be angry and alert. To always have to be ready and willing to challenge whiteness. To always have a perfectly pithy tweet or a thousand-word screed ready in response to the next Trayvon Martin, the newest Sandra Bland, and the latest Eric Garner, and to feel all the same feelings again. And again. And again. I just wanted a fucking break.”
Damon Young, What Doesn't Kill You Makes You Blacker: A Memoir in Essays

Lauren Wilkinson
“The first few moments after you meet someone are precious, because the data on them is plentiful and your own subjectivity has yet to interfere.”
Lauren Wilkinson, American Spy

Abbi Waxman
“Some people take energy; some people give energy . . . Occasionally, you get lucky and find someone whose energy balances your own and brings you into neutral.”
Abbi Waxman, The Bookish Life of Nina Hill
