The Colour Purple

"- 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 colour purple in a field somewhere and don't notice it.

- What it do when it pissed off? I ast.

- Oh, it just make something else.  People think pleasing God is all God care about.  But any fool living in the world can see it always trying to please us back."

- From The Color Purple by Alice Walker, 1982
