Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
“It's worth it, it's worth the final smash-up.”
Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

Rebecca Solnit
“When I was younger, I studied the men I was involved with so carefully that I saw or thought I saw what pain or limitation lay behind their sometimes crummy behavior. I found it too easy to forgive them, or rather to regard them with sympathy at my own expense. It was as though I saw the depths but not the surface, the causes but not the effect. Or them and not myself. I think we call that overidentification, and it's common among women. But gods and saints and boddhisattvas must see the sources of all beings' actions and see their consequences, so that there is no self, no separation, just a grand circulatory system of being and becoming and extinguishing. To understand deeply enough is a kind of forgiveness or love that is not the same as whitewashing, if you apply it to everyone, and not just the parade through your bed.”
Rebecca Solnit, The Faraway Nearby

Cheryl Strayed
“Humans are beautifully imperfect and complex. We're horny, ass-saving, ego-driven drug fiends, among other, more noble things.”
Cheryl Strayed, Tiny Beautiful Things: Advice on Love and Life from Dear Sugar

Sharon Dogar
“I can't imagine children coming out of me," she says suddenly, "only stories.”
Sharon Dogar

Sara Majka
“What had I read back then, what had made me feel that way? I had a volume of Rilke and Saint Augustine and early Hemingway stories. I must have left them in the room when I moved away.”
Sara Majka, Cities I've Never Lived In: Stories
