James Baldwin – You Think Your Pain And Your Heartbreak Are Unprecedented… But Then You Read…”


…And realize that you’re not alone,
that several before you travelled the same road

and right now you still have company,
get connected to the past and learn from history,

live in the present without heartbreak and pain
what happened before will happen again,

but those who read and learn.
learn not to repeat mistakes.

So always remember, when .

You think your pain and your heartbreak are unprecedented in the history of the world, but then you read. It was books that taught me that the things that tormented me most were the very things that connected me with all the people who were alive, who had ever been alive.” –James Baldwin.
