Blood, The Stuff Of Life
"It's in the blood."
Ever heard that statement?
There are many notable quotations about blood, both as a literal substance that keeps us alive, and as a figurative connector that enables race and rage, kin and humankind.
Canadian writer Lawrence Hill considers both the literal and the figurative in his book Blood: The Stuff of Life.
