Tony Morrison quotes
10 preguntas picadas, sobre diversos temas y realizadas cada una por distintos lectores, provenientes de diversas partes del país, es lo que ha debido responder Tony Morrison en el diario Time. La política ha estado presente, obvio, y se le pregunta por Obama y Hillary.
Why did you endorse Barack Obama for the presidency? —Chris Francis Lightbourne, Long Island, N.Y.
I thought about voting for Hillary at the beginning. I don't care that she is a woman. I need more than that. Neither his race, his gender, her race or her gender was enough. I needed something else, and the something else was his wisdom.
Pero mi respuesta favorita es la que le da a un padre cuya hija quinceañera quiere ser escritora:
My 15-year-old daughter lives to write. What advice do you have for aspiring writers? —Darren Wethers, St. Louis, Mo.
The work is in the work itself. If she writes a lot, that's good. If she revises a lot, that's even better. She should not only write about what she knows but about what she doesn't know. It extends the imagination.
