Quotes by Paula Bomer  (?)

“I was thinking how hard it is to be ugly, how hard it is to be an outsider, how it turns people cruel and bitter and mean. Richard is sort of super ugly, but even if you’re just not what everyone else is, it makes you act in ways that you wouldn’t if you were like everyone else.”
Paula Bomer, Inside Madeleine

“This was before I knew that we all live on this planet, driving in the cars of our own little minds, our own self-contained worlds. Yes, this was before I knew that, when I thought that I mattered, when I thought that people saw me, deep into me, saw all my love and excitement at being alive, saw the very glistening, running-overness of my aliveness. But we only matter when we do something awful. Then, someone sees us and only then.”
Paula Bomer, Inside Madeleine

“Although we usually fail to think of it in this way, the world around us today is just one of countless possible worlds. The millions of species of plants, animals, and insects we see around us are the expression of myriad interacting processes, including chance -- perhaps especially chance. At any point in its prehistory, a species might just easily have taken a different direction, given a slightly altered confluence of events, thus leaving today’s world a slightly different place.”
Paula Bomer, Inside Madeleine
