Quote of the Day (Toni Morrison, on Beauty as ‘What We Were Born For’)

“I think of beauty as an absolute necessity. I don’t think it’s a privilege or an indulgence, it’s not even a quest. I think it’s almost like knowledge, which is to say, it’s what we were born for.”—American novelist and Nobel Literature laureate Toni Morrison (1931-2019), interviewed by Claudia Brodsky Lacour, The Paris Review Podcast, Episode 13: “Before the Light,” Podcast Season 2, Oct. 23, 2019
