62. “The Cancer Journals,” Audre Lorde

September 22, 2009 Leave a comment Go to comments

This was a really short book, but powerful and contains two of my favorite quotes of all time. I want them tattooed on my arm, my forehead, my chest:

“When I dare to be powerful, to use my strength in th service of my vision, then it becomes less and less important whether or not I am unafraid.” (I often hear this as “whether or not I am afraid.”) page 13

“Your silence will not protect you.” page 20

What can you even say after that?
