There are many key quotes in the novel Jubilee by Margaret Walker. Perhaps the most moving quotes are made regarding hatred and love.

1. "Keeping hatred inside makes you git mean and evil inside."

2. "We supposen to love everybody like God loves us."

3. "Folks with a loving heart don't never need no doctor."

Given that the text speaks to issues such as family, deliverance, duty, and religion the quotes above show the importance of love and the letting go of hate. In the end, letting go of hate insures one can forgo the physical stress hate places on the heart, "shrinks you up inside...and squeezes your heart tight", and allows one to "don't never need no doctor."
