“That scared me more than anything, sometimes; the noise of my thoughts, the sense that even the space inside myself wasn't safe.”
Emma Newman, Planetfall

“I think “majority” is one of my least favorite words. It’s so often used to justify bad decisions.”
Emma Newman, Planetfall

“That was the second major lie I told that week. It gets easier, in some ways; now I lie without expending any effort. But I think each one has its own weight. One alone may barely register, like a grain of sand in the palm of one's hand. But soon enough there's more than can be held and they start to slip through our grasp if we are not careful.”
Emma Newman, Planetfall
