Beah Richards: Baby Suggs
Baby Suggs : And the beat, beat, of your heart... Love it. More than the lungs that need yet to breathe free air. More than the womb, which holds life. More than the private parts that give life. Love your heart. This... this is the prize. Amen. This the prize... Amen!
Baby Suggs : No matter what happen, God has led you home. So lay em' down Sethe, sword and shield. For God has led you home.
Baby Suggs : Over yonder, they do not love your flesh. Oh, my people... they do not love your hands. Those, they only use, tie, bind, chop off and leave empty! Love your hands! Raise them up, and kiss them.
