A Quote by James Baldwin on love, growth, fear, daring, and grace

“Love takes off the masks that we fear we cannot live without and know we cannot live within. I use the word “love” here not merely in a personal sense but as a state of being, or a state of grace- not in the infantile American sense of being made happy but in the tough and universal sense of quest and daring and growth”

James Baldwin (1924 - 1987)
