Famous quotes containing the words world and/or haiti: of my motivating forces has been to recreate the world I know into a world I wish I could be in. Hence my optimism and happy endings. But I’ve never dreamed I could actually reshape the real world.
    Kristin Hunter (b. 1931)

    For four hundred years the blacks of Haiti had yearned for peace. for three hundred years the island was spoken of as a paradise of riches and pleasures, but that was in reference to the whites to whom the spirit of the land gave welcome. Haiti has meant split blood and tears for blacks.
    Zora Neale Hurston (1891–1960)
