Today's quote is from The Hours by Michael Cunningham.

Richard, a friend of one of the other main characters, Clarissa, laments: "But there are still the hours, aren't there? One and then another, and you get through the one and then, my god, there's another one."

Richard was the guest of honor of a party that Clarissa threw for him as a celebration of his success as an artist. Richard himself doesn't realize the magnitude of his accomplishment. Instead,...

Today's entry comes from Their Eyes Were Watching God by Zora Neale Hurston:

pg. 192, the main character Janie speaks: "Two things everybody's got tuh do fuh theyselves. They got tuh go tuh God, and they got tuh find out about livin' fur theyselves."

Janie reflects on her life choices at the end of the novel, and she seems satisfied with them. All she asks that others not sit in judgment of her.

The Color of Water by James McBride:
James, who is biracial, asks the ultimate question on pg. 92: "Am I black or white?"
His mother, Ruth, who is white and Jewish: "You're a human being. Educate yourself or you'll be a nobody."

Humanity has no color, and the message Ruth sent to her young son was that if you behave with dignity and poise, you will be respected.

This quote is from one of my favorite books, Beloved by Toni Morrison:
"Freeing yourself was one thing; claiming ownership of that freed self was another." -Sethe, the main character, who "spoke" extensively on her life as a former slave...and her attempt to gain control of her life after she became free.
