“Look to yourself. You free. Nothing and nobody is obliged to save you but you. Seek your own land. You young and a woman and there's serious limitation in both, but you are a person too. Don't let Lenore or some trifling boyfriend and certainly no devil doctor decide who you are. That's slavery. Somewhere inside you is that free person I'm talking about. Locate her and let her do some good in the world.”
― Toni Morrison, Home
I read this book during the weekend. I like Toni Morrison's novels. They are hard to read and beautiful. And sad.
Though, I did not like the part where she describes feelings of a woman who found out she would remain childless. I guess no mother could describe those feelings in a way that suits me.
