Happy birthday, Octavia Butler!

Happy birthday to Octavia Butler (22 June, 1947 – 24 February, 2006)!

R.I.P. Octavia Butler


“Beware:
Ignorance
Protects itself.
Ignorance
Promotes suspicion.
Suspicion
Engenders fear.
Fear quails,
Irrational and blind,
Or fear looms,
Defiant and closed.
Blind, closed,
Suspicious, afraid,
Ignorance
Protects itself,
And protected,
Ignorance grows.”

― Octavia E. Butler, Parable of the Talents (1998)
