“At heart we are all powerful, beautiful, and capable of changing the world with our bare hands.”
Dianne Sylvan, The Body Sacred

“It’s okay. I’m just in a weird mood. Have you ever had a feeling like something was about to happen?”
“Of course,” Kat replied. “It’s called PMS.”
Dianne Sylvan, Queen of Shadows

“Consider the holiness of your hands. They are how you do your work on this earth; they are a microcosm of the hands of the Goddess, and can change the world as easily as hers can.”
Dianne Sylvan, The Body Sacred
