Naomi Coronado is reading A Wrinkle in Time: This was a reread, for sentimentalities sake. I love all her books that I have been fortunate enough to stumble upon and read. They take me back to being young and akward (still akward >.<) and adventurous

Jeanette Winterson
“People do go back, but they don't survive, because two realities are claiming them at the same time. Such things are too much. You can salt your heart, or kill your heart, or you can choose between the two realities. There is much pain here. Some people think you can have your cake and eat it. The cake goes mouldy and they choke on what's left. Going back after a long time will make you mad, because the people you left behind do not like to think of you changed, will treat you as they always did, accuse you of being indifferent, when you are only different.”
Jeanette Winterson, Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit

Jeanette Winterson
“In this life you have to be your own hero.

By that I mean you have to win whatever it is that matters to you by your own strength and in your own way.

Like it or not, you are alone in a forest, just like all those fairy tales that begin with a hero who’s usually stupid but somehow brave, or who might be clever, but weak as a straw, and away he goes (don’t worry about the gender), cheered on by nobody, via the castles and the bears, and the old witch and the enchanted stream, and by and by (we hope) he’ll find the treasure.”
Jeanette Winterson, The Powerbook

Jeanette Winterson
“As it is, I can't settle, I want someone who is fierce and will love me until death and know that love is as strong as death, and be on my side for ever and ever. I want someone who will destroy and be destroyed by me. There are many forms of love and affection, some people spend their whole lives together without knowing each other's names. Naming is a difficult and time-consuming process; it concerns essences, and it means power. But on the wild nights who can you call home? Only the one who knows your name.”
Jeanette Winterson, Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit

Chuck Palahniuk
“It's all mirror, mirror on the wall because beauty is power, the same way money is power, the same way a gun is power.”
Chuck Palahniuk, Invisible Monsters

Jeanette Winterson
“They believed that if a mouse found your hair clippings and built a nest with them you got a headache. If the nest was big enough, you might go mad.”
Jeanette Winterson, Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit
