You are your best thing quote by Toni Morrison

‘Sethe’, he says, ‘me and you, we got more yesterday than anybody. We need some kind of tomorrow.’
He leans over and takes her hand. With the other he touches her face. ‘You your best thing, Sethe, You are.’ His holding fingers are holding hers.
‘Me? Me?’.

– Toni Morrison

Beloved. Paul D and Sethe in Chapter 27.
