- I have learned not to worry about love; but to honor its coming with all my heart.
- It is healthier, in any case, to write for the adults one's children will become than for the children one's mature critics often are.
- Expect nothing, live frugally on surprise.
- She say, Celie, tell the truth, have you ever found God in church? I never did. I just found a bunch of folks hoping for him to show. Any God I ever felt in church I brought in with me. And I think all the other folks did too. They come to church to share God, not find God.
- No person is your friend who demands your silence, or denies your right to grow.
- Never be the only one, except, possibly, in your own home.
- The experience of God, or in any case the possibility of experiencing God, is innate.
- It seems our fate to be incorrect (look where we live, for example), and in our incorrectness stand.
- For in the end, freedom is a personal and lonely battle; and one faces down fears of today so that those of tomorrow might be engaged.
- It no longer bothers me that I may be constantly searching for father figures; by this time, I have found several and dearly enjoyed knowing them all.
