So by now you all are probably wondering why I always post quotes. It's because since around Sophomore year I started collecting quotes that I really liked. While reading a few nights ago I came across on that really struck me. I can't really think of a particular instance which I relate to it, but I think it's remarkably moving.
"Freeing yourself was one thing; claiming ownership of that freed self was another."
This quote obviously makes sense in context with slavery, but I think it also has multiple more implications. For example Morrison states that she was able to relate to this sense of freedom after she quit her editing job and really took ownership of her freedom. Have yall ever had a moment which you felt like this?
