“She refused to be bored chiefly because she wasn't boring.”
Zelda Fitzgerald, The Collected Writings

William Shakespeare
“When I got enough confidence, the stage was gone. When I was sure of losing, I won. When I needed people the most, they left me. When I learnt to dry my tears, I found a shoulder to cry on. And when I mastered the art of hating, somebody started loving me.”
William Shakespeare

Monica Ali
“The thing about getting older is that you don't need everything to be possible any more, you just need things to be certain.”
Monica Ali, Brick Lane

Anthony Doerr
“Open your eyes and see what you can with them before they close forever.”
Anthony Doerr, All the Light We Cannot See

Paul Celan
“Speak you too,
speak as the last,
say out your say.

Speak-
But don’t split off No from Yes.
Give your say this meaning too:
Give it the shadow.

Give it shadow enough,
Give it as much
As you know is spread round you from
Midnight to midday and midnight.

Look around:
See how things all come alive-
By death! Alive!
Speaks true who speaks shadow.

But now the place shrinks, where you stand:
Where now, shadow-stripped, where?
Climb. Grope upwards.
Thinner you grow, less knowable, finer!
Finer: a thread
The star wants to descend on:
So as to swim down beliow, down here
Where it sees itself shimmer:in the swell
Of wandering words.”
Paul Celan
