"Failure is a part of everyone’s life. For some of us, it’s most of our life. But the amount and degree of failure is not what matters. In the end, it’s how you respond to that failure that matters..."

"Siblinghood is fickle. Each sibling grows at their own pace, or they don’t. Each finds their own interests, or they don’t. And each has the freedom to be their own person, or they don’t. They are hopelessly intertwined and every decision that one makes will irreversibly affect the other..."

"From her motherly brown hands sweat slips off in teardrops, falling silently into the dough she rolls. She works indefatigably in a blazing August heat; one almost as repressive as her government..."

       "Black people don’t go hiking.
       I don’t hate nature. I hate insects, high humidity on a 95-degree day, freezing wind, and bird shit on the sidewalk.

"Dad grabs the ceramic blue teapot and carefully swishes it with hot water. “You’ve got to scald the pot—it’s the most important thing you can do. Keeps the tea hot.” He pours the water out and reaches the pot towards me. “Give it a feel.” It’s hot to the touch. The rest of the water in the kettle is slowly rumbling, its sound the low howl of the night breeze caressing window sills..."

"  I didn’t used to do it. I started by eating dinner at the table like a regular, vertical person. But then I decided that I couldn’t be alone with my thoughts and so I started to read a book with dinner. This proved unsustainable as my attention span waned and I kept getting dollar-store tomato sauce on my overdue copy of The Corrections.
