“I'm not invisible. I have desires. I want to be touched and held and told that I'm worth something. I am not pitiful. I am better than you can imagine. I have talents. I have successes and failures. I love my life. I sometimes feel dissatisfied with the world. I come from a place of love, not death. I am special. I matter. I can be the most interesting person in the room. I can blend in and that's okay. I'm somebody. I'm a nobody. I feel deeply and I want to be allowed to show it. I don't want to be judged. I can be judgmental. When you give me platitudes and you belittle my feelings. I'm brave. I'm scared. I'm wandering. I have plans. I will be the best me I can be. I am not who I think I am. I am not who you think I am; I am who I think you think I am, so think well of me, please.”
Abria Mattina, Wake

“I underestimated your laziness.”
“It’s pronounced intelligence, Kirk.”
Abria Mattina, Wake

“You're bored?" she says incredulously. "You have two hands and a penis. This shouldn't be a difficult equation.”
Abria Mattina, Wake

“Language is courage: the ability to conceive a thought, to speak it, and by doing so to make it true.”
Salman Rushdie, The Satanic Verses

“You have to know what you stand for, not just what you stand against.”
Laurie Halse Anderson, Speak

“Let us read, and let us dance; these two amusements will never do any harm to the world.”
Voltaire

“What you do makes a difference, and you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make.”
Jane Goodall

“I would always rather be happy than dignified.”
Charlotte Brontë, Jane Eyre
