Wednesday Quote: Gloria E Anzaldua

‘Nobody’s going to save you.

No one’s going to cut you down, cut the thorns thick around you.

No one’s going to storm the castle walls nor kiss awake your birth, climb down your hair, nor mount you onto the white steed.

There is no one who will feed the yearning. Face it.

You will have to do; do it yourself’.

Gloria E Anzaldua
