This is making the rounds again and I’m so glad for it.  Toni Morrison on Charlie Rose.

Toni Morrison makes a profound point with such exceptional eloquence and grace.  

"What does that mean?"  

It’s actually great to see how Rose is rendered totally inarticulate when she challenges him.  It must have been a real revelation to him.  And this is, I think, the very best case.  He, and many others who have watched this, cannot help but be educated by her.  Her response is not a chastisement or a harangue (even though those things would be justified); her response is a lesson.  It changes the listener.

Too late to hope that I can be Toni Morrison when I grow up?

Happy birthday you goddess.
