“mama, you taught me to look pretty but i can’t anymore, and i am learning that’s okay. i am learning to sharpen my teeth and rule kingdoms, instead.”
Arlen C., Unmythologize

“i am learning to sharpen my teeth and rule kingdoms, instead.”
Arlen C., Unmythologize

“iv. you are not a masterpiece, you are not a symphony and here’s the thing: you are learning that’s okay, that sometimes the echoes are enough. you are not a poem. he is not a poet. but you are trying to write your own story.”
Arlen C., Unmythologize

“She closes her eyes. He probably won’t come back, she thinks. Or he will, differently. What they have now they can never have back again. But for her the pain of loneliness will be nothing to the pain that she used to feel, of being unworthy. He brought her goodness like a gift and now it belongs to her. Meanwhile his life opens out before him in all directions at once. They’ve done a lot of good for each other. Really, she thinks, really. People can really change one another.
You should go, she says. I’ll always be here. You know that.”
Sally Rooney, Normal People

“Her eyes fill up with tears again and she closes them. Even in memory she will find this moment unbearably intense, and she's aware of this now, while it's happening. She has never believed herself fit to be loved by any person. But now she has a new life, of which this is the first moment, and even after many years have passed she will still think: Yes, that was it, the beginning of my life.”
Sally Rooney, Normal People
