“I see that if you try to fit someone in a box, she might slip through the seams like water and become her own river.”
Laura Resau, The Queen of Water

“Power is a tricky thing, mija. It can lift you up high on its wings and up into the sky where you feel invincible. But sometimes you forget the bigger thing that makes you fly. Without God, without love, you fall. You stop being grateful and humble, and you fall." pg. 230”
Laura Resau, The Indigo Notebook

“Life is the ultimate artistic masterpiece, and it's up to you, the creator, to make it as wildly dazzling as possible.”
Laura Resau, The Indigo Notebook

Kunj HELLO! :)
i'd just like to recommend "The God of Small Things" by Arundhati Roy (Winner of the Booker Prize). I hope you cherish it as much as I did.
ABSOLUTELY MIND-BOGGLING.
