“I think us here to wonder, myself. To wonder. To ask. And that in wondering bout the big things and asking bout the big things, you learn about the little ones, almost by accident. But you never know nothing more about the big things than you start out with. The more I wonder, he say, the more I love.” —Alice Walker, The Color Purple
“Beautifully presented and utterly convincing.” —The New Yorker
“My favorite thought most days about the suffering of our planet is that some of us, many of us, recognize the perilous journey we are on and its unexpectedly thrilling allies and joys—and we are preparing ourselves, of necessity, to withstand many a shock, as we continue on our way.” —Alice Walker, “Preface: The Mother’s Business” in Possessing the Secret of Joy
“Keep in mind always the present you are constructing. It should be the future you want.” —Alice Walker, The Temple of My Familiar
“Alice Walker shrinks for no moral or emotional complexity, and she writes consummately skillful short stories.” —San Francisco Chronicle
