Ursula K. Le Guin
“What is a woman's power then?" she asked.
"I don't think we know."
"When has a woman power because she's a woman? With her children, I suppose. For a while..."
"In her house, maybe."
She looked around the kitchen. "But the doors are shut," she said, "the doors are locked."
"Because you're valuable."
"Oh yes. We're precious. So long as we're powerless.”
Ursula K. Le Guin, Tehanu

Simon Van Booy
“I wonder if things can happen too early or too late or if everything happens at exactly the right time. If so, how sad and beautiful.”
Simon Van Booy, The Secret Lives of People in Love

Simon Van Booy
“[I] read books because I love them, not because I think I should read them.”
Simon Van Booy

Barbara Hall
“The path to our destination is not always a straight one. We go down the wrong road, we get lost, we turn back. Maybe it doesn't matter which road we embark on. Maybe what matters is that we embark.”
Barbara Hall

“We can’t jump off bridges anymore because our iPhones will get ruined. We can’t take skinny dips in the ocean because there’s no service on the beach and adventures aren’t real unless they’re on Instagram. Technology has doomed the spontaneity of adventure and we’re helping destroy it every time we Google, check-in, and hashtag.”
Jeremy Glass
