Between the World and Me by Ta-Nehisi Coates- Quote Collections

“The writer, and that was what I was becoming, must be wary of every Dream and every nation, even his own nation. Perhaps his own nation more than any other, precisely because it was his own.”

Ta-Nehisi Coates in Between the World and Me

“Hate gives identity. The nigger, the fag, the bitch illuminate the border, illuminate what we are ostensibly are not, illuminate the Dream of being white, of being a Man.”

Ta-Nehisi Coates in Between the World and Me

“But by then I knew that I wasn’t so much bound to a biological “race” as to a group of people, and these people were not black because of any uniform color or any uniform physical feature.”

Ta-Nehisi Coates in Between the World and Me

One of the most amazing books I’ve ever had the genuine pleasure of reading. 5/5.
