Happy birthday, Jean Toomer! Here are some quotes from the author.
“We have many reformers, few transformers.”
“All our lives we have been waiting to live.”
“Everyone secretly expects and looks forward to the coming of some great event which will gloriously upset him.”
“Talk about it only enough to do it. Dream about it only enough to feel it. Think about it only enough to understand it. Contemplate it only enough to be it.”
“Man is a nerve of the cosmos, dislocated, trying to quiver into place.”
“Meet life’s terms but never accept them.”
“People mistake their limitations for high standards.”
