James Baldwin: " Passion is not friendly..."






Passion is not friendly. It is arrogant,
superbly contemptuous of all that is not
itself, and, as they very definition of passion implies the impulse to
freedom, it has a might intimidating to power. It contains a challenge.
It contains an unspeakable hope."

— James Baldwin
