“You write in order to change the world, knowing perfectly well that you probably can't, but also knowing that literature is indispensable to the world... The world changes according to the way people see it, and if you alter, even but a millimeter the way people look at reality, then you can change it.”
James Baldwin

Marcus Tullius Cicero

“They're your parents. They're meant to love you because. Never in spite.”
Patrick Ness, Release

“When people don't express themselves, they die one piece at a time.”

“They say terrible things are done in darkness, but terrible things are also done in a light too blinding for anyone else to look at directly.”
