"When you starts hatin' people, you gets uglier than they is - an I ain't never had no time for ugliness, 'cause that's where de devil comes in - in ugliness!""...I knows there ain't no room in de world fo' nothin' mo'n love. I knows, chile! Ever'thing there is but lovin' leaves a rust on yo' soul. An' to love sho 'nough, you got to have a spot in yo' heart fo' ever'body - great an' small, white an' black, an' them what's good an' them what's evil - 'cause love ain't got no crowded-out places where de good ones stays an' de bad ones can't come in. When it gets that way then it ain't love."
