“Who is to say that robbing a people of its language is less violent than war?”
Ray Gwyn Smith, Borderlands/La Frontera: The New Mestiza

“We felt so small with the city lights stretching forever below us, and we yelled at the top of our lungs because we were just these small humans but we felt more longing than could ever fit inside us.”
Nina LaCour, The Disenchantments

“So, I guess we are who we are for alot of reasons. And maybe we'll never know most of them. But even if we don't have the power to choose where we come from, we can still choose where we go from there. We can still do things. And we can try to feel okay about them.”
Stephen Chbosky, The Perks of Being a Wallflower
