PinkMonkey® Quotations on . . .

The Color Purple

By Alice Walker QUOTATION: I think it pisses God off if you walk by the color purple in a field somewhere and don’t notice it.
ATTRIBUTION: Alice Walker (b. 1944), U.S. author, critic. Shug, in The Color Purple (1983).

QUOTATION: Tea to the English is really a picnic indoors.
ATTRIBUTION: The Color Purple Simon & Schuster 82

QUOTATION: The trouble with our people is as soon as they got out of slavery they didn’t want to give the white man nothing else. But the fact is, you got to give ‘em something. Either your money, your land, your woman or your ass.
ATTRIBUTION: Alice Walker (b. 1944), U.S. author, critic. Pa, in The Color Purple, p. 155 (1983).

QUOTATION: Somewhere in the bible it say Jesus’ hair was like lamb’s wool, I say. Well, say Shug, if he came to any of these churches we talking bout he’d have to have it conked before anybody paid him any attention. The last thing niggers want to think about they God is that his hair kinky.

QUOTATION: She say, Celie, tell the truth, have you ever found God in church? I never did. I just found a bunch of folks hoping for him to show. Any God I ever felt in church I brought in with me. And I think all the other folks did too. They come to church to share God, not find God.
ATTRIBUTION: Alice Walker (b. 1944), U.S. author, critic. Shug, in The Color Purple, p. 165, ed. Women’s Press (1983).
