Quote of the Day (Zora Neale Hurston, on Having the ‘Nerve To Walk My Own Way’)

“I have never liked stale phrases and bodyless courage. I have the nerve to walk my own way, however hard, in my search for reality, rather than climb upon the rattling wagon of wishful illusions."— Zora Neale Hurston (1891-1960), letter to Countee Cullen, March 5, 1943, quoted in Carla Kaplan, Zora Neale Hurston: A Life in Letters (2007)
