More From Alice Walker
- "Life is better than death, I believe, if only because it is less boring, and because it has fresh peaches in it."
- "The animals of the world exist for their own reasons. They were not made for humans any more than black people were made for white, or women created for men."
- "All History is current; all injustice continues on some level, somewhere in the world."
More In Power
- "My major allegiance has been to storytelling, not to history."― Russell Banks
- "The power of the American system of republicanism lies in its capacity to allow religious belief to be a competing, not a controlling, factor in American life."― Jon Meacham
- "We’re taught Lord Acton’s axiom: all power corrupts, absolute power corrupts absolutely. I believed that when I started these books, but I don’t believe it’s always true any more. Power doesn’t always corrupt. Power can cleanse. What I believe is always true about power is that power always reveals."― Robert Caro
