Why this book took me so long to discover and read I'll never know, because it's devastatingly beautiful. I loved AVA--I understood her, and every single decision she made throughout this book. It was cathartic and painful and perfect.

Jane Austen
“I am the happiest creature in the world. Perhaps other people have said so before, but not one with such justice. I am happier even than Jane; she only smiles, I laugh.”
Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice

Louisa May Alcott
“I'd rather take coffee than compliments just now.”
Louisa May Alcott, Little Women

Fannie Flagg
“You're just a bee charmer, Idgie Threadgoode. That's what you are, a bee charmer.”
Fannie Flagg, Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe

Aldous Huxley
“But I don't want comfort. I want God, I want poetry, I want real danger, I want freedom, I want goodness, I want sin.'

'In fact,' said Mustapha Mond, 'you're claiming the right to be unhappy.'

'All right then,' said the Savage defiantly, 'I'm claiming the right to be unhappy.'

'Not to mention the right to grow old and ugly and impotent; the right to have syphilis and cancer; the right to have too little to eat; the right to be lousy; the right to live in constant apprehension of what may happen tomorrow; the right to catch typhoid; the right to be tortured by unspeakable pains of every kind.' There was a long silence.

'I claim them all,' said the Savage at last.

Mustapha Mond shrugged his shoulders. 'You're welcome," he said.”
Aldous Huxley, Brave New World
