Arundhati Roy
“To love. To be loved. To never forget your own insignificance. To never get used to the unspeakable violence and the vulgar disparity of life around you. To seek joy in the saddest places.

Arundhati Roy, The Cost of Living

Virginia Woolf
“For most of history, Anonymous was a woman.”
Virginia Woolf

Napoléon Bonaparte
“History is a set of lies agreed upon.”
Napoléon Bonaparte
