Nautie Books :: The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks Wrap Up

Judging from the lack of interest I'm going to go out on a limb here and assume this one didn't grab you.  I understand.  Really, I do. I got a lot out of this read but, here are a few of my favorite quotes:

“Like the Bible said,' Gary whispered, 'man brought nothing into this world and he'll carry nothing out. Sometimes we care about stuff too much. We worry when there's nothing to worry about.”

“When he asked if she was okay, her eyes welled with tears and she said, “Like I’m always telling my brothers, if you gonna go into history, you can’t do it with a hate attitude. You got to remember, times was different.”

“She's the most important person in the world and her family living in poverty. If our mother is so important to science, why can't we get health insurance?”
