Audre Lorde's Quotes


  You know how fighting fish do it? They blow bubbles and in each one of those bubbles is an egg and they float the egg up to the surface. They keep this whole heavy nest of eggs floating, and they're constantly repairing it. It's as if they live in both elements.  
 -  Audre Lorde
  

  Your silence will not protect you.  
 -  Audre Lorde
  

  I write for those women who do not speak, for those who do not have a voice because they were so terrified, because we are taught to respect fear more than ourselves. We've been taught that silence would save us, but it won't.  
 -  Audre Lorde
