A Quote by Maxine Hong Kingston on learning

I learned to make my mind large, as the universe is large, so that there is room for paradoxes.

A Quote by Maxine Hong Kingston on change, women, character, learning, logic, words, truth, and manifestation

Be careful what you say. It comes true. It comes true. I had to leave home in order to see the world logically, logic the new way of seeing. I learned to think that mysteries are for explanation. I enjoy the simplicity. Concrete pours out of my mouth to cover the forests with freeways and sidewalks. Give me plastics, periodical tables, TV dinners with vegetables no more complex than peas mixed with diced carrots. Shine floodlights into dark corners: no ghosts.
