James Baldwin Quotations

-Beyond talent lies all the usual words: discipline, love, luck – but, most of all, endurance.

-The questions which one asks oneself begin, at least, to illuminate the world, and become one’s key to the experience of others.

-The purpose of art is to lay bare the questions which have been hidden by the answers.

-The price one pays for pursuing any profession or calling is an intimate knowledge of its ugly side.
James Baldwin
