If I admit with Richard Wright in that poem “Between the World and Me” that evil goes into me as does the good, then I’m obliged to study myself, to center myself and make a choice. For I must know that the battles I wage are within myself. The wars I fight are in my mind. They are struggles to prevent the negative from overtaking the positive, and to prevent the good from eradicating all the negative and rendering me into an apathetic, useless organism, which has no struggle, no dynamic, and no life. —Maya Angelou
