Families – quote

January 2, 2012

“Families will not be broken.

Curse and expel them, send their children wandering,

drown them in floods and fires,

and old women will make songs out of all these sorrows

and sit on the porches

and sing them on mild evenings.

Marilynne Robinson

As quoted 199 Ed. Valerie Kack-Brice (1994) For She is The Tree of Life: Grandmothers through the eyes of women writers. Conari Press: Emeryville, CA
