#Quote
1 [on "Places in the Heart"] I have a rural background. I was born in Georgia, and my grandparents have a farm in Georgia. My grandparents have influenced me a great deal in my portrayal of Moze. My grandfather is ninety years old. When I'm around him, I see a sense of history. He's lived through so much. My grandparents are do beautiful; they come from the earth.
2 [In a 1985 interview] I pray. I pray a lot. I read the Bible. I feel fortunate in that sense. I don't do it by myself. There's somebody watching me up there, and there's somebody watching me down here too!
3 Some people's life is governed by what their publicists or what their managers define and shape or frame what they should do. I don't have that. I do what I feel like doing.
4 Meeting someone, seeing someone, finding someone, finding a relationship with somebody that you didn't anticipate. I'm challenged all the time with keeping that space open.
5 It would be extraordinary for [the American] film culture to unravel slavery but it doesn't. People are afraid to deal with it. There is no framework for people to unravel it.
6 Every day of my life I walk with the idea I am black no matter how successful I am.
