Cytaty Gwendolyn Brooks

„We are each other's harvest; we are each other's business; we are each other's magnitude and bond.“

—  Gwendolyn Brooks
Context: That time we all heard it, cool and clear, cutting across the hot grit of the day. The major Voice. The adult Voice forgoing Rolling River, forgoing tearful tale of bale and barge and other symptoms of an old despond. Warning, in music-words devout and large, that we are each other's harvest: we are each other's business: we are each other's magnitude and bond.

„Wherever life can grow, it will.
It will sprout out,
and do the best it can.“

—  Gwendolyn Brooks
Context: My Poem is life, and not finished. It shall never be finished. My Poem is life, and can grow. Wherever life can grow, it will. It will sprout out, and do the best it can. I give you what I have. You don’t get all your questions answered in this world. How many answers shall be found in the developing world of my Poem? I don’t know. Nevertheless I put my Poem, which is my life, into your hands, where it will do the best it can. "Song of Winnie"

„That is the Crazy Woman
Who would not sing in May.“

—  Gwendolyn Brooks
Context: And all the little people Will stare at me and say, "That is the Crazy Woman Who would not sing in May." "The Crazy Woman"

„A poem doesn’t do everything for you.
You are supposed to go on with your thinking.“

—  Gwendolyn Brooks
Context: I pass you my Poem. A poem doesn’t do everything for you. You are supposed to go on with your thinking. You are supposed to enrich the other person’s poem with your extensions, your uniquely personal understandings, thus making the poem serve you. "Song of Winnie"

„I pass you my Poem! — to tell you
we are all vulnerable“

—  Gwendolyn Brooks
the midget, the Mighty, the richest, the poor. Men, women, children, and trees. I am vulnerable. "Song of Winnie"

„Our earth is round, and, among other things
That means that you and I can hold completely different
Points of view and both be right.
The difference of our positions will show
Stars in your window I cannot even imagine.“

—  Gwendolyn Brooks
Context: Our earth is round, and, among other things That means that you and I can hold completely different Points of view and both be right. The difference of our positions will show Stars in your window I cannot even imagine. Your sky may burn with light, While mine, at the same moment, Spreads beautiful to darkness. The above statements have been widely published in the above format as lines of verse attributed to Brooks, usually as a poem titled "Corners on the Curving Sky" — but one website http://web.archive.org/20090809112040/www.geocities.com/juscurious/anon.html indicated that she declared she did not write them. The words actually occur as an introduction to the "Corners on the Curving Sky" section of the book Soulscript (1970) compiled by June Jordan, in which other poems of Brooks were included, and thus is apparently the work of Jordan. It appears simply in paragraph form and reads thus:

„Already I am no longer looked at with lechery or love.“

—  Gwendolyn Brooks
Context: Already I am no longer looked at with lechery or love. My daughters and sons have put me away with marbles and dolls, Are gone from the house. My husband and lovers are pleasant or somewhat polite And night is night.

„You don’t get all your questions answered in this world.“

—  Gwendolyn Brooks
Context: My Poem is life, and not finished. It shall never be finished. My Poem is life, and can grow. Wherever life can grow, it will. It will sprout out, and do the best it can. I give you what I have. You don’t get all your questions answered in this world. How many answers shall be found in the developing world of my Poem? I don’t know. Nevertheless I put my Poem, which is my life, into your hands, where it will do the best it can. "Song of Winnie"

„Poetry is life distilled.“

—  Gwendolyn Brooks
Context: My Poem is life, and not finished. It shall never be finished. My Poem is life, and can grow. Wherever life can grow, it will. It will sprout out, and do the best it can.
