There is no great sorrow dammed up in my soul, nor lurking behind my eyes. I do not mind at all. I do not belong to the sobbing school of Negrohood who hold that nature somehow has given them a lowdown dirty deal and whose feelings are all hurt about it. Even in the helter-skelter skirmish that is my life, I have seen that the world is too strong regardless of a little pigmentation more or less. No, I do not weep at the world—I am too busy sharpening my oyster knife.” - Zora Neale Hurston "If the mind is illumined, there is clear blue sky in a dark room. If the thoughts are muddled, there are malevolent ghosts in broad daylight." - Zicheng Hong Best 📕: "Dust Tracks on a Road: A Memoir" by Zora Neale Hurston Fav 🎼 👨‍🎨: Actress, Bjork, Carl Cox, D.Dan, DJ Funk, Dizzee Rascal, Goldie, Kaytranada, Jamz Supernova, Jeff Mills, & MC Jin Fav 🎵 Genres: Bassline, Future R&B, Grime, House, Jungle, Speed Garage, & Techno Fav 🎥: The Best Man, The Best Man: Holiday, Higher Learning, Human Traffic, Soapdish, & 地球最後的夜晚 (Long Day’s Journey into Night) Fav 📺 Series: The Crown, EastEnders, Generations: The Legacy, Hollyoaks, Industry, Mad Men, Queen Sugar, The River, The Wire, & Vincenzo.
