Inspiration from Mrs. Brooks

Quotes by Gwendolyn Brooks

“I am a writer perhaps because I am not a talker.”
“Exhaust the little moment. Soon it dies. And be it gash or gold it will not come Again in this identical guise”
“Very early in life I became fascinated with the wonders language can achieve. And I began playing with words.”
“Poetry is life distilled.”
“Each body has its art…”
“When you use the term minority or minorities in reference to people, you’re telling them that they’re less than somebody else.”
“We are each other’s harvest; we are each other’s business; we are each other’s magnitude and bond.”
-Hannah Stanton
