“The question of who I was was not solved because I had removed myself from the social forces which menaced me – anyway, these forces had become interior, and I had dragged them across the ocean with me… I could not escape the knowledge that if I was still in need of havens, my journey had been for nothing. Haves are high-priced. The price exacted of teh haven-dweller is that he contrive to delude himself into believing that he has found a haven.”

– James Baldwin, Nobody Knows My Name
