 Gwendolyn Brooks (1917-2000)

"Truth-tellers are not always palatable. There is a preference for candy bars."

"Art hurts. Art urges voyages- and it is easier to stay at home."

"Writing is a delicious agony."

"When you use the term minority or minorities in reference to people, you're telling them that they're less than somebody else."
