Remembering Toni Morrison (1932-2019)
“You wanna fly, you got to give up the shit that weighs you down.”
"The function of freedom is to free someone else.”
“Something that is loved is never lost.”

“At some point in life the world's beauty becomes enough. You don't need to photograph, paint, or even remember it. It is enough.”
