"Listen, God love everything you love - and a mess of stuff you don't. But more than anything else, God love admiration.
You saying God vain? I ast.
Naw, she say. Not vain, just wanting to share a good thing. I think it pisses God off if you walk by the color purple in a field somewhere and don't notice it.
What it do when it passed off. I ast.
Oh, it make something else. People think pleasing God is all God care about But any fool living n the world can see it always trying to please us back."
- Alice Walker, The Color Purple
