Toni Morrison Quote

On This Day February 18th 1931 Toni Morrison was Born

Don’t ever think I fell for you, or fell over you. I didn’t fall in love, I rose in it.

Jazz by Toni Morrison

Toni Morrison is one of the most celebrated authors in the world. In addition to writing plays, and children’s books, her novels have earned her countless prestigious awards including the Pulitzer Prize and the Presidential Medal of Freedom from President Barack Obama.

As the first African-American woman to win the Nobel Prize in Literature, Morrison’s work has inspired a generation of writers to follow in her footsteps.

In 2000, she was named a Living Legend by the Library of Congress. Morrison also wrote children’s books with her son until his death at 45 years old. Two years later, Morrison published the last book they were working on together and received the Presidential Medal of Freedom in that same month.

If there’s a book that you want to read, but it hasn’t been written yet, then you must write it

You wanna fly, you got to give up the shit that weighs you down.

Song of Solomon

Freeing yourself was one thing, claiming ownership of that freed self was another.

Beloved

Definitions belong to the definers, not the defined

Beloved

You are your best thing

Don't ever think I fell for you, or fell over you. I didn't fall in love, I rose in it. Jazz by Toni Morrison
