Bebe Moore Campbell quotes

To me, there's no point in writing merely to entertain.

Race, redemption and healing - that's my thing.

I have to entertain, because if I don't entertain you, you're not going to continue reading. But if I'm not out to enlighten, or change your mind about something, or change your behavior, then I really don't want to take the journey.

African-Americans know about racism, but I don't think we really know the causes. I decided it's first of all a family problem.

I had an agent who spent eight years - eight years! - trying to sell my stories. She sold other people's work; she just didn't sell mine.

The success of our operas rests most of the time in the hands of the conductor. This person is as necessary as a tenor or a prima donna. Giuseppe Verdi

Be the change that you wish to see in the world. Mahatma Gandhi

If only media people would stop reaching for the low-hanging fruit, which is cynicism and pessimism, and stopped trying so hard to be hip and cool and have a swagger. Emilio Estevez
