"If growing up is painful for the Southern Black girl, being aware of her displacement is the rust on the razor that threatens the throat.

"The champion picker of the day before was the hero of the dawn. If he prophesied that the cotton in today's field was going to be sparse and stick to the bolls like glue, every listener would grunt a hearty agreement."
 Marguerite's carried the pineapple slice,
 "around for hours, shredding off the fruit until nothing was left expect the perfume"
on her fingers, like Charlie and his chocolate bar, Children of poorBrand waiting for random helicopter drops of cash to stimulate a next Economy.

"I find it interesting that the meanest life, the poorest existence, is attributed to God's will, but as human beings become more affluent, as their living standard and style begin to ascend the material scale, God descends the scale of responsibility at a commensurate speed.

"Daddy Clidell explained to me that they were the most successful con men in the world, and they were going to tell  me about some games so that I would never be 'anybody's mark'."
Isn't this what Sarah's father tries to teach her?
