2 quotes from Home, Toni Morrison.

Just because it’s Monday, and I’m crushing on Toni Morrison. Home was my first Toni Morrison novel and I loved it. Here are 2 quotes from Home.

“his bed was where they slept and where the great thing people warned about or giggled about took place. It was not so much painful as dull. Cee thought it would get better later. Better turned out to be simply more, and while the quantity increased, its pleasure lay in its brevity.”
-Toni Morrison, Home

“Misery don’t call ahead. That’s why you have to stay awake—otherwise it just walks on in your door.” – Toni Morrison
