The novel Their Eyes Were Watching God, written by Zora Neale Hurston and orginally published in 1937, is an inspiration to both women and African-Americans.  Hurston's rich language and vivid details make for a fascinating and heartbreaking story about a woman, Janie Crawford, and her quest to find freedom and love in a world of bitter and ironic circumstances.  With this webpage, I will explore the book Their Eyes Were Watching God through twelve different quotations, each of which will reflect a different character or plot point in the novel.
