Issa Rae
“Girls, New Girl, 2 Broke Girls. What do they all have in common? The universal gender classification, “girl,” is white. In all three of these successful series, a default girl (or two) is implied and she is white. That is the norm and that is what is acceptable. Anything else is niche.”
Issa Rae, The Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl

“I had to believe I was immune to the emotional and mental blows of my life thus far. I had to believe that I was above it. If I didn’t, how could I win?”
Rosie Pérez, Handbook for an Unpredictable Life: How I Survived Sister Renata and My Crazy Mother, and Still Came Out Smiling

“There’s nothing evil or spooky about anything if there isn’t anything evil and spooky in your soul.”
Rosie Pérez, Handbook for an Unpredictable Life: How I Survived Sister Renata and My Crazy Mother, and Still Came Out Smiling

Sherwood Anderson
“Dare to be strong and courageous. That is the road. Venture anything.”
Sherwood Anderson

“People who are “normal” as a result of good parenting—even just decent parenting—are very lucky. Yeah, I know, everyone’s hell is relative, and blah, blah, blah, but those people are very fortunate.”
Rosie Pérez, Handbook for an Unpredictable Life: How I Survived Sister Renata and My Crazy Mother, and Still Came Out Smiling
