“I wanted to protect you, but I'm starting to think that the best thing you can do for people is teach them how to protect themselves. Every girl needs to be at least a little dangerous.”
Kai Cheng Thom, Fierce Femmes and Notorious Liars

“A sanctuary is a place where the door only locks from the inside”
Kai Cheng Thom, Fierce Femmes and Notorious Liars

“That's the difference between love and hunger," she says. "Hunger is a story you gt stuck in. Love's the story that takes you somewhere new.”
Kai Cheng Thom, Fierce Femmes and Notorious Liars
