Silence is a sounding thing, To one who listens hungrily

— Gwendolyn B. Bennett

The most genuine Gwendolyn B. Bennett quotes that are simple and will have a huge impact on you

I want to hear the chanting Around a heathen fire Of a strange black race.


I want to feel the surging Of my sad people's soul Hidden by a minstrel-smile.


All eager-lipped I kissed the mouth of Death.
