Happy Easter to everyone that celebrates!!! Welcome back to my weekly favourite book quotes post!!!
Today’s quotes are from the book Beloved by Toni Morrison.
“Freeing yourself was one thing, claiming ownership of that freed self was another.”
“Love is or it ain’t. Thin love ain’t love at all.”
“Sweet, crazy conversations full of half sentences, daydreams and misunderstandings more thrilling than understanding could ever be.”
“Definitions belong to the definers, not the defined.”
“You are your best thing”
“Love is never any better than the lover. Wicked people love wickedly, violent people love violently, weak people love weakly, stupid people love stupidly, but the love of a free man is never safe. There is no gift for the beloved. The lover alone possesses his gift of love. The loved one is shorn, neutralized, frozen in the glare of the lover’s inward eye.”
“Something that is loved is never lost.”
“Not knowing it was hard; knowing it was harder”
“It never looked as terrible as it was and it made her wonder if hell was a pretty place too.”
