Quotes by Maia Kobabe  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“Some people are born in the mountains, while others are born by the sea. Some people are happy to live in the place they were born, while others must make a journey to reach the climate in which they can flourish and grow. Between the ocean and the mountains is a wild forest. That is where I want to make my home.”
Maia Kobabe, Gender Queer: A Memoir

“Sometimes I feel like my brain is a machine built by someone who lost the instruction manual.”
Maia Kobabe, Gender Queer: A Memoir

“I invented and named a lost male twin who had always felt like he should be a girl. If I could just find him we would finally both feel like whole complete people.”
Maia Kobabe, Gender Queer: A Memoir
