Quote of the Day

“You’re sexy as hell,” he says. Lots of men have said this to me. They like a woman with no shame. We’re rare, you see, because we’re told to be ashamed of everything every day by everyone. Ashamed to give them what they want, ashamed not to want to give it to them. Ashamed to show our average bodies, ashamed not to have a perfect one. I have no idea how normal women date. The world seems like it’d be an unbearable place for people with real feelings.

~ Victoria Helen Stone, Jane Doe

“Well, that’s simple, Nezra. I ran away from him and swore to him that I’d never do anything he says. You should try it sometime.  It’s called ‘I hate you, leave me alone.’ It gets all the psychos foaming at the mouth for more. Add a little ‘I’ll never love you,’ and bam! Instant crazy.”
Sea of Stars (Kricket #2), Amy A. Bartol

I knew what I had to do — I just didn’t like it. I’d have to blow the remaining two at the same time.

Please don’t quote that last sentence out of context.

It begins with absence and desire. It begins with blood and fear. It begins with a discovery of witches.
― Deborah Harkness, A Discovery of Witches

Quote of the Day

Image
There are days when I feel so lightly connected to the earth that the threads that tether me to the planet are gossamer thin, spun sugar. A strong gust of wind could dislodge me completely, and I’d lift off and blow away, like one of those seeds in a dandelion clock.

~ Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine, Gail Honeyman

Ah, the constant refrain of Midwestern life. Illness? Offer food. Funeral? Bring food. New baby? Drop off food. Suddenly discover you're some sort of illegitimate secret orphan? Food, food, food.
