Words to live by

“She burned sorrow and fear like fuel…”

The words of Claudia Roth Pierpont, describing Zora Neale Hurston.

Intended as a poetic description of a life full of struggle, it also serves an accurate portrayal of anyone who would survive this existence without total capitulation to hardship, loss and betrayal.

They are, in fact, words to live by.
