"Love is never any better than the lover. Wicked people love wickedly, violent people love violently, weak people love weakly, stupid people love stupidly, but the love of a free man is never safe. There is no gift for the beloved. The lover alone possesses his gift of love."

-- Toni Morrison, The Bluest Eye

Earlier this month, the Ohio Board of Education declared Toni Morrison's The Bluest Eye as inappropriate for high school students. Support this important literary masterpiece by reading it during #bannedbooksweek .
