• I have known the joy and pain of friendship. I have served and been served. I have made some good enemies for which I am not a bit sorry. I have loved unselfishly, and I have fondled hatred with the red-hot tongs of Hell. That's living

    Zora Neale Hurston
  • Some people could look at a mud puddle and see an ocean with ships

    Zora Neale Hurston
  • Love is like the sea. It's a moving thing, but still and all, it takes its shape from the shore it meets, and it's different with every shore

    Zora Neale Hurston
  • When God had made The Man, he made him out of stuff that sung all the time and glittered all over. Some angels got jealous and chopped him into millions of pieces, but still he glittered and hummed. So they beat him down to nothing but sparks but each little spark had a shine and a song. So they covered each one over with mud. And the lonesomeness in the sparks make them hunt for one another

    Zora Neale Hurston
  • All gods who receive homage are cruel. All gods dispense suffering without reason. Otherwise they would not be worshipped. Through indiscriminate suffering men know fear and fear is the most divine emotion. It is the stones for altars and the beginning of wisdom. Half gods are worshipped in wine and flowers. Real gods require blood

    Zora Neale Hurston
