From Sula by Toni Morrison:

pg. 92: I don't want to make somebody else. I want to raise myself."

Sula was a free spirit-that is, she came and went as she pleased. As a young, vibrant, educated twenty-something, Sula was more concerned about nurturing a career, making a name for herself than having a family.

From my all-time favorite The Color Purple by Alice Walker:

From 1984:

pg. 35: "Who controls the past, controls the future; who controls the present controls the past." The official party slogan, as interpreted by Winston, the main character.

To a great extent, the above quote is ringing true in our world. We can revise history to suit our own needs and agendas. With a single thought and the stroke of a pen, we can erase an entire people off the face of this planet. Powerful, huh?
