James Baldwin
“The victim who is able to articulate the situation of the victim has ceased to be a victim: he or she has become a threat.”
James Baldwin

J.R.R. Tolkien
“A man that flies from his fear may find that he has only taken a short cut to meet it.”
J.R.R. Tolkien, The Children of Húrin

Junot Díaz
“Motherfuckers will read a book that’s one third Elvish, but put two sentences in Spanish and they [white people] think we’re taking over.”
Junot Díaz

Tom Perrotta
“After all, what was adult life but one moment of weakness piled on top of another? Most people just fell in line like obedient little children, doing exactly what society expected of them at any given moment, all the while pretending that they’d actually made some sort of choice.”
Tom Perrotta, Little Children

Jim Morrison
“That's what real love amounts to - letting a person be what he really is. Most people love you for who you pretend to be. To keep their love, you keep pretending - performing. You get to love your pretence. It's true, we're locked in an image, an act - and the sad thing is, people get so used to their image, they grow attached to their masks. They love their chains. They forget all about who they really are. And if you try to remind them, they hate you for it, they feel like you're trying to steal their most precious possession.”
Jim Morrison
