Citações Paul Laurence Dunbar

„.. we wear the mask that grins and lies,
it hides our cheeks and shades our eyes-
this debt we pay to human guile;
with torn and bleeding hearts we smile.“

—  Paul Laurence Dunbar
Context: We wear the mask that grins and lies, It hides our cheeks and shades our eyes,— This debt we pay to human guile; With torn and bleeding hearts we smile, And mouth with myriad subtleties. Why should the world be over-wise, In counting all our tears and sighs? Nay, let them only see us, while We wear the mask. We smile, but, O great Christ, our cries To thee from tortured souls arise. We sing, but oh the clay is vile Beneath our feet, and long the mile; But let the world dream otherwise, We wear the mask! We Wear The Mask, in the 1913 collection of his work, The Complete Poems of Paul Laurence Dunbar.

„It is a little dark still, but there are warnings of the day and somewhere out of the darkness a bird is singing to the Dawn.“

—  Paul Laurence Dunbar
Representative American Negroes, an essay from The Negro Problem, a collection of essays written in 1903 by leading African Americans.
