Famous quotes containing the word morrison:

    Bit by bit ... she had claimed herself. Freeing yourself was one thing; claiming ownership of that freed self was another.
    —Toni Morrison (b. 1931)

    I remember a very important lesson that my father gave me when I was twelve or thirteen. He said, “You know, today I welded a perfect seam and I signed my name to it.” And I said, “But, Daddy, no one’s going to see it!” And he said, “Yeah, but I know it’s there.” So when I was working in kitchens, I did good work.
    —Toni Morrison (b. 1931)

    How soon country people forget. When they fall in love with a city it is forever, and it is like forever. As though there never was a time when they didn’t love it. The minute they arrive at the train station or get off the ferry and glimpse the wide streets and the wasteful lamps lighting them, they know they are born for it. There, in a city, they are not so much new as themselves: their stronger, riskier selves.
    —Toni Morrison (b. 1931)
