Maria liked a quote
The Blind Assassin by Margaret Atwood
“She imagines him imagining her. This is her salvation.
In spirit she walks the city, traces its labyrinths, its dingy mazes: each assignation, each rendezvous, each door and stair and bed. What he said, what she said, what they did, what they did then. Even the times they argued, fought, parted, agonized, rejoined. How they’d loved to cut themselves on each other, taste their own blood. We were ruinous together, she thinks. But how else can we live, these days, except in the midst of ruin?”
Margaret Atwood

“Yeah, about the test...

The test will measure whether you are an informed, engaged, and productive citizen of the world, and it will take place in schools and bars and hospitals and dorm rooms and in places of worship. You will be tested on first dates, in job interviews, while watching football, and while scrolling through your Twitter feed. The test will judge your ability to think about things other than celebrity marriages, whether you’ll be easily persuaded by empty political rhetoric, and whether you’ll be able to place your life and your community in a broader context. The test will last your entire life, and it will be comprised of the millions of decisions that, when taken together, will make your life yours. And everything, everything, will be on it.

...I know, right?”
John Green

Diana Vreeland
“You don't have to be pretty. You don't owe prettiness to anyone: not your boyfriend/spouse/partner, not your coworkers, especially not random men on the street. You don't owe it to your mother; you don't owe it to your children. You don't owe it to civilization in general. Prettiness is not a rent you pay for occupying a space marked "female.”
Diana Vreeland

Rumi
“I closed my mouth and spoke to you in a hundred silent ways.”
Rumi

Albert Einstein
“Those who have the privilege to know have the duty to act.”
Albert Einstein

Charlotte Brontë
“Jane Eyre, who had been an ardent, expectant woman — almost a bride, was a cold, solitary girl again: her life was pale; her prospects were desolate.”
Charlotte Brontë, Jane Eyre
