Quote of the Day (Chester Himes, on ‘An Indomitable Quality Within the Human Spirit’)

“There is an indomitable quality within the human spirit that cannot be destroyed; a face deep within the human personality that is impregnable to all assaults.”—African-American crime novelist Chester Himes (1909-1984), “The Dilemma of the Negro Novelist in the United States” (1948), reprinted in Beyond the Angry Black, edited by John A. Williams (1966)
