Famous Creative Women Quotations from . . .

Lorraine Hansberry
(1930-1965) born on
May 19
US playwright. "Her "Raisin in the Sun," 1959 was the first play by a black woman produced on Broadway."

"There is always something left to love. And if you haven't learned that, you ain't learned nothing."

Seems like God don't see fit to give the black man nothing but dreams -- but He did give us children to make them dreams seem worthwhile.
"The thing that makes you exceptional, if you are at all, is inevitably that which must also make you lonely."
"[T]here is only one large circle that we march in, around and around, each of us with our own little picture -- in front of us -- our own little mirage that we think is the future."
A woman who is willing to be herself and pursue her own potential runs not so much the risk of loneliness as the challenge of exposure to more interesting men -- and people in general.
