I Love Quotes From Books

‘Here they learned how to behave; The careful development of thrift, patience, high morals, and good manners. In short, how to get rid of the funkiness. The dreadful funkiness of passion, the funkiness of nature, the funkiness of the wide range of human emotions. Wherever it erupts, this Funk, they wipe it away; where it crusts, they dissolve it; wherever it drips, flowers, or clings, they find it and fight it until it dies. They fight this battle all the way to the grave. The laugh that is a little too loud; the enunciation a little too round; the gesture a little too generous…’
-Toni Morrison ; The Bluest Eye

I haven’t read Toni Morrison (I’m ashamed to say), now I realize I have to. Thanks!
