Caitlin Moran
“While motherhood is an incredible vocation, it has no more inherent worth than a childless woman simply being who she is, to the utmost of her capabilities. To think otherwise betrays a belief that being a thinking, creative, productive, and fulfilled woman is, somehow, not enough. That no action will ever be the equal of giving birth.”
Caitlin Moran, How To Be A Woman

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

Joan Didion
“On the flight to LaGuardia I remember thinking that the most beautiful things I had ever seen had all been seen from airplanes. The way the American west opens up. The way in which, on a polar flight across the Arctic, the islands in the sea give way imperceptibly to lakes on the land. The sea between Greece and Cyprus in the morning. The Alps on the way to Milan. I saw all those things with John. How could I go back to Paris without him, how could I go back to Milan, Honolulu, Bogotá? I couldn’t even go to Boston.”
Joan Didion

Rebecca Solnit
“If the boundaries of the self are defined by what we feel, then those who cannot feel even for themselves shrink within their own boundaries, while those who feel for others are enlarged, and those who feel compassion for all beings must be boundless. They are not separate, not alone, not lonely, not vulnerable in the same way as those of us stranded in the islands of ourselves, but they are vulnerable in other ways. Still, that sense of the dangers of feeling for others is so compelling that many withdraw, and develop elaborate stories to justify withdrawal, and then forget that they have shrunk. Most of us do, one way or another.”
Rebecca Solnit

Binyavanga Wainaina
“You stop in front of a woman who, in that fat Ndirangu novel, is somebody who wears a thing called a chignon, which is a vague thing to you, but you know it involves hair that manages to face the sky and stay in place, and you know it smells like this: like crisply unwrapping paper and hidden machines that let you stand still and dream while they propel you to where you need to go.”
Binyavanga Wainaina
