The Help (Kathryn Stockett)

  • Dirty ain't a colour; disease ain't the Negro side a town (p.96)
  • But the dichotomy of love and disdain living side-by-side is what surprises me (p.258)
  • "If any white lady reads my story, that's what I want them to know. Saying thank you, when you really mean it, when you remember what someone done for you. it's so good." (p.260)
  • We are just two people. Not that much separates us. Not nearly as much as I'd thought (p. 418)
  •  And then she say it, just like I need her to. "You is kind," she say. "You is smart. You is important." (p. 443)
