“I am a writer and my faith in the world of art is intense, but not irrational, nor naïve – because art takes us and makes us take a journey beyond price, beyond cost, into bearing witness to the world as it is and as it should be. Art invites us to know beauty and to solicit it, summon it, from even the most tragic of circumstances.”

Toni Morrison, 1931-2019, FaceBook post May 29, 2013
