A few beautiful quotes from Thomas Glave's beautiful Among the Bloodpeople, about diaspora…

"Diaspora knows the sum of its many parts, but not all the parts acknowledge the sum."

"Diaspora reveals the difficulties of diverse languages in concert even as it makes possible, necessary, previously unimagined combinations of concert in language."

"Diaspora creates suspicion and insularity, but must, by virtue of its very nature, also knock them apart."

"In diaspora all things are possible, so many things yet remain unseen."
