Citações Zora Neale Hurston

„Viver sem amigos é como tentar tirar leite de um urso para o café da manhã. Dá muito trabalho e não vale à pena.“

—  Zora Neale Hurston, livro Dust Tracks on a Road
seems to me that trying to live without friends is like milking a bear to get cream for your morning coffee. It is a whole lot of trouble, and then not worth much after you get it. Dust tracks on a road - página 180, Zora Neale Hurston - HarperPerennial, 1991, ISBN 0060552840, 9780060552848 - 277 páginas

„There are years that ask questions and years that answer.“

—  Zora Neale Hurston, livro Their Eyes Were Watching God
Their Eyes Were Watching God (1937), Ch. 3, p. 21.

„Sometimes, I feel discriminated against, but it does not make me angry. It merely astonishes me.“

—  Zora Neale Hurston
How It Feels to Be Colored Me (1928), Context: Sometimes, I feel discriminated against, but it does not make me angry. It merely astonishes me. How can any deny themselves the pleasure of my company? It is beyond me. But in the main, I feel like a brown bag of miscellany propped against a wall. Against a wall in company with other bags, white, red and yellow. Pour out the contents, and there is discovered a jumble of small things priceless and worthless. A first-water diamond, an empty spool, bits of broken glass, lengths of string, a key to a door long since crumbled away, a rusty knife-blade, old shoes saved for a road that never was and never will be, a nail bent under the weight of things too heavy for any nail, a dried flower or two still a little fragrant. In your hand is the brown bag. On the ground before you is the jumble it held — so much like the jumble in the bags, could they be emptied, that all might be dumped in a single heap and the bags refilled without altering the content of any greatly. A bit of colored glass more or less would not matter. Perhaps that is how the Great Stuffer of Bags filled them in the first place — who knows?

„I am crazy about the idea of Democracy. I want to see how it feels.“

—  Zora Neale Hurston
Context: I accept this idea of democracy. I am all for trying it out. It must be a good thing if everybody praises it like that. If our government has been willing to go to war and sacrifice billions of dollars and millions of men for the idea I think that I ought to give the thing a trial. The only thing that keeps me from pitching head long into this thing is the presence of numerous Jim Crow laws on the statute books of the nation. I am crazy about the idea of Democracy. I want to see how it feels. "Crazy for This Democracy" in Negro Digest (December 1945).
