Olivia Fox Cabane
“The key questions are: Which mental state would be most useful in this situation? And which version of reality would help you get there?”
Olivia Fox Cabane, The Charisma Myth: Master the Art of Personal Magnetism

Kiese Laymon
“There were so many things we needed in those classrooms, in our city, in our state, in our country that our teachers could have provided if they would have gone home and really done their homework. They never once said the words: “economic inequality,” “housing discrimination,” “sexual violence,” “mass incarceration,” “homophobia,” “empire,” “mass eviction,” “post traumatic stress disorder,” “white supremacy,” “patriarchy,” “neo-confederacy,” “mental health,” or “parental abuse,” yet every student and teacher at that school lived in a world shaped by those words.”
Kiese Laymon, Heavy

Alexander Trocchi
“No doubt I shall go on writing, stumbling across tundras of unmeaning, planting words like bloody flags in my wake....”
Alexander Trocchi

Kiese Laymon
“For a few seconds, I remembered that the most abusive parts of our nation obsessively neglect yesterday while peddling in possibility. I remembered that we got here by refusing to honestly remember together. I remember that it was easier to promise than it was to reckon or change.”
Kiese Laymon, Heavy

“My body knew things my mouth and my mind couldn't, or maybe wouldn't, express. It knew that all over my neighborhood, boys were trained to harm girls in ways girls could never harm boys, straight kids were trained to harm queer kids in ways queer kids could never harm straight kids, men were trained to harm women in ways women could never harm men, parents were trained to harm children in ways children would never harm parents, babysitters were trained to harm kids in ways kids could never harm babysitters. My body knew white folk were trained to harm us in ways we could never harm them.”
Kiese Laymon, Heavy
