February 28, 2019 Quote of the day

I never expected my writing to become as popular as it did.

When you write, you’re inside the project. You can’t really think about the reception. It has to be worth it even if no one reads it.

When you know that people know who you are, you are always working – and not the work you want to do. You are sort of performing, because you know they are looking – or at least glancing – at you.

For me, my writing benefits from my experience.

You are growing into consciousness, and my wish for you is that you feel no need to constrict yourself to make other people comfortable.

Ta-Nehisi Coates
