Alice Walker

I think it pisses God off if you walk by the color purple in a field somewhere and don't notice it. People think pleasing God is all God cares about. But any fool living in the world can see it always trying to please us back.

Alice Walker – The Color Purple

Us sing and dance, make faces and give flower bouquets, trying to be loved.
You ever notice that trees do everything to get attention we do, except walk?
