    Default James Baldwin

    radio posted a link to this page and I'm just a little ways down and already decided I'm in love.

    http://www.goodreads.com/author/quot....James_Baldwin

    I'll probably look for pictures and videos later when I'm not on my phone but this thread couldn't wait.

    (also if anybody is familiar with his work, what should I read first?)

    “You think your pain and your heartbreak are unprecedented in the history of the world, but then you read.”

    “Not everything that is faced can be changed, but nothing can be changed until it is faced.”

    “I imagine one of the reasons people cling to their hates so stubbornly is because they sense, once hate is gone, they will be forced to deal with pain.”

    “The paradox of education is precisely this - that as one begins to become conscious one begins to examine the society in which he is being educated.”

    “People don't have any mercy. They tear you limb from limb, in the name of love. Then, when you're dead, when they've killed you by what they made you go through, they say you didn't have any character. They weep big, bitter tears - not for you. For themselves, because they've lost their toy.”

    Se/Ni, i'm thinking beta introvert

    I've read Go Tell It on the Mountain and The Fire Next Time, which I think are his two most popular works. It was quite a few years ago but I remember liking them... unfortunately that's about it.
