Walker

Famous quotes containing the word walker:

    An evil moon bleeds drops of death.
    The earth burns brown.
    Grass shrivels and dries to a yellowish mass.
    Earth wears a dun-colored dress
    like an old woman wooing the sun to be her lover,
    be her sweetheart and her husband bound in one.
    —Margaret Abigail Walker (b. 1915)

    To me, the black black woman is our essential mother—the blacker she is the more us she is—and to see the hatred that is turned on her is enough to make me despair, almost entirely, of our future as a people.
    —Alice Walker (b. 1944)

    It is healthier, in any case, to write for the adults one’s children will become than for the children one’s “mature” critics often are.
    —Alice Walker (b. 1944)
