I’m reading Chinua Achebe. I read the line, “The sounds of women wailing settled like a sediment of sorrow on the earth” and I burst into tears. Could that be the most beautiful sentence I’ve ever read? The alliterations and lilting sounds?
“You wanna fly, you got to get rid of the shit that weighs you down.” —
I love this quote. I want to go to bed with this quote. I would tattoo this quote on my body if I weren’t worried I’d get tired of seeing the word “shit” every day. It resonates deeply.
