"I am hungry for Black women who will not turn from me in anger and contempt even before they know me or hear what I have to say. I am hungry for Black women who will not turn away from me even if they do not agree with what I say. We are, after all, talking about different combinations of the same borrowed sounds.
Sometimes exploring our differences feels like marching out to war." -#AudreLorde, Eye to Eye

"As Black women, we have wasted our angers too often, buried them, called them someone else's, cast them wildly into oceans of racism and sexism from which no vibration resounded, hurled them into each other's teeth and then ducked to avoid the impact." -#AudreLorde, Eye to Eye

"One Black woman sits and silently judges another, how she looks, how she acts, how she impresses others. The first woman's scales are weighted against herself. She is measuring the impossible. She is measuring the self she does not fully want to be. She does not want to accept the contradictions, nor the beauty. She wishes the other woman would go away. She wishes the other woman would become someone else, anyone other than another Black woman. She has enough trouble dealing with being herself. 'Why don't you learn to fly straight,' she says to the other woman. 'Don't you understand what your poor showing says about us all? If I could fly I'd certainly do a better job than that. Can't you put on a more together show? The white girls do it. Maybe we could get one to show you how.' The other woman cannot speak. She is too busy keeping herself from crashing upon the ground. She will not cry the tears which are hardening into little sharp stones that spit from her eyes and implant themselves in the first woman's heart, who quickly heals over them and identifies them as the source of her pain." -from Eye to Eye, an essay by #AudreLorde β€’β€’β€’ "This is not a hobby or a show. This is my full self living out and you cannot love it yet. It might be because you are still learning how to love me as reflected in yourself." -@sapientsoul

"I believe that one of the most sound ideas in dramatic writing is that in order to create something universal, you must pay very great attention to the specific."

"The practice of peace and reconciliation is one of the most vital and artistic of human actions." "You carry Mother Earth within you. She is not outside of you. Mother Earth is not just your environment. In that insight of inter-being, it is possible to have real communication with the Earth, which is the highest form of prayer." #thichnhathanh #monastery #buddhism #joy #freedom #inspiration #morningmeditation #peace #smile #writersofinstagram #writers #meditation #antioppression #world #worldchangers #change #gaia #motherearth #environment #artist #peace #reconciliation #thoughtleader #changemaker

"It's very important that we re-learn the art of resting and relaxing. Not only does it help prevent the onset of many illnesses that develop through chronic tension and worrying; it allows us to clear our minds, focus, and find creative solutions to problems." #thichnhathanh #monastery #buddhism #joy #freedom #inspiration #morningmeditation #peace #smile #writersofinstagram #writers #meditation #antioppression #world #worldchangers #change #thoughtleader #changemaker #rest #relaxation #clarity
