Audre Lorde On Fear, Strength, Living, & Learning From Our Differences

“When I dare to be powerful – to use my strength in the service of my vision, then it becomes less and less important whether I am afraid.”

“It is not our differences that divide us. It is our inability to recognize, accept, and celebrate those differences.”

“Poetry is not only dream and vision; it is the skeleton architecture of our lives. It lays the foundations for a future of change, a bridge across our fears of what has never been before.”

“When we speak we are afraid our words will not be heard or welcomed. But when we are silent, we are still afraid. So it is better to speak.”

“Life is very short and what we have to do must be done in the now.”

“I am deliberate and afraid of nothing.”

“Each time you love, love as deeply as if it were forever.”

“When I use my strength in the service of my vision it makes no difference whether or not I am afraid.”

“Art is not living. It is the use of living.”
