If Beale Street Could Talk

I know I can’t help you very much right now – God knows what I wouldn’t give if I could. But I know about suffering; if that helps. I know that it ends. I ain’t going to tell you no lies, like it always ends for the better. Sometimes it ends for the worse. You can suffer so bad that you can be driven to a place where you can’t ever suffer again: and that’s worse…But you’re strong. Lean on your strength.

James Baldwin, ‘If Beale Street Could Talk‘.
