Was recently browsing goodreads.com, and thoroughly enjoyed these beautiful/inspirational quotes from Gwendolyn Brooks:
“Live not for battles won, for the-end-of-the-song. Live in the along.”
“I am a writer perhaps because I am not a talker.”
“When you love a man, he becomes more than a body. His physical limbs expand, and his outline recedes, vanishes. He is rich and sweet and right. He is part of the world, the atmosphere, the blue sky and the blue water”
“She was learning to love moments. To love moments for themselves. ”
“Exhaust the little moment. Soon it dies.
And be it gash or gold it will not come
Again in this identical disguise. ”
