Anzaldúa's book, Borderlands/La Frontera, impacted my identity as a human, a woman, and Latina the first time I read through it. This particular quote is from Chapter 6 of the book ("Tlilli, Tlapalli, The Path of the Red and Black Ink,” p. 92, 3rd ed.) and has always stuck with me. Each time I go back to it I learn something new. Anzaldúa was an advocate of expressing and finding freedom through writing. I highly recommend this read to everyone. There is a lot of Aztec imagery and allusions that tie back to the Latino/a ethnic identity, but she shares wisdom that can be applied to anyone's life, regardless of background. Note: for those of you who do not speak Spanish, "el espiritu del mundo" is the "spirit of the world"
