So sweet and precious is family life  (James McBride Quotes) But at the end of the day, there are some questions that have no answers, and then one answer that has no question: love rules the game. Every time. All the time. That’s what counts  (James McBride Quotes) But what difference does it make?... When you’re mixed, you see how absurd this business of race is  (James McBride Quotes) People don’t realize you’re blowing over changes, time changes, harmony, different keys. I mark a point in my solo where it’s got to peak at point D I go to A, b, c D then I’m home  (James McBride Quotes) My parents were nonmaterialistic. They believed that money without knowledge was worthless, that education tempered with religion was the way to climb out of poverty in America, and over the years they were proven right  (James McBride Quotes) The man was the finest preacher. He could make a frog stand up straight and get happy with Jesus  (James McBride Quotes) Some things in this world just ain’t meant to be, not in the times we want ‘em to, and the heart has to hold it in this world as a remembrance, a promise for the world that’s to come. There’s a prize at the end of all of it, but still, that’s a heavy load to bear  (James McBride Quotes) I wish all critics, no matter their color, were more sophisticated when it comes to the moral questions a film like ‘St. Anna’ is trying to raise  (James McBride Quotes) I’m proud of ‘Miracle at St. Anna’ and I loved it; there’s no question in my mind it’s as good as any movie that came out in 2007  (James McBride Quotes) Newt Gingrich wrote a novel, and he’s a short story. Bill Clinton wrote a biography, and he’s a novel  (James McBride Quotes) It’s the same old story. Nothing in this world happens unless white folks says it happens. And therein lies the problem of being a professional black storyteller - writer, musician, filmmaker  (James McBride Quotes) I’m one of the few Black writers, or African American writers, who managed to work my way through the system so that it has allowed me to speak in a kind of free way. But most African American writers don’t have that. They don’t have that opportunity, they don’t have that.  (James McBride Quotes) You have to choose between what the world expects of you and what you want for yourself,  (James McBride Quotes) I could have been, and may one day well be a high school English teacher, because I’ve been given so much I just feel like I have to give something back. The fact that some people consider my work to be good or strong, it’s nice, but I know in my heart that if it’s not coming - oftentimes it’s probably not coming from the best place.  (James McBride Quotes) As a journalist, the details always tell the story  (James McBride Quotes) Until you expose the cancer, you can’t fix it  (James McBride Quotes) Family is the last and greatest discovery. It is our last miracle  (James McBride Quotes) Writing for me is cutting out the fat and getting to the meaning  (James McBride Quotes) If you have the material it will form itself as a kind of connective tissue  (James McBride Quotes) Be kind to the living  (James McBride Quotes) I’m not interested in food. It’s just fuel  (James McBride Quotes) My family is my career  (James McBride Quotes) The black church will accept anybody  (James McBride Quotes) God is the color of water. Water doesn’t have a color  (James McBride Quotes) First person narrative is a very effective tool but you have to know as a writer how to make it work  (James McBride Quotes) There’s such a big difference between being dead and alive, I told myself, the greatest gift that anyone can give anyone else is life. And the greatest sin a person can do to another is to take away that life. Next to that, all the rules and religions in the world are secondary; mere words and beliefs that people choose to believe and kill and hate by. My life won’t be lived that way, and neither, I hope, will my children’s  (James McBride Quotes) God gived you the seed. But the watering and caring of that seed is up to you  (James McBride Quotes) I come to the understanding that maybe what was on the inside was more important, and that your outer covering didn’t count so much as folks thought it did, colored or white, man or woman  (James McBride Quotes) I’d like to do something involving jazz. But books are how I earn my living, and I’d like to stay with the horse I rode in on  (James McBride Quotes) You have to choose between what the world expects of you and what you want for yourself  (James McBride Quotes)
