Quotes by Carolina De Robertis  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“There's that feeling that comes when you read something and the lines speak directly to you, and to you only, even though the person who wrote them died long before you were born, or, even if alive, has no idea you exist. The words seep right into your mind. They pour into your secret hollows and take their shape, a perfect fit, like water. And you are slightly less alone in the universe, because you have been witnessed, because you have been filled, because someone once found words for things within you that you couldn't yourself name – something gesturing not only toward what you are, but what you could become.”
Carolina De Robertis, Perla

“Why did life put so much inside a woman and then keep her confined to smallness?”
Carolina De Robertis, Cantoras

“She was awake, alive, full of ideas like branches in a greenhouse, growing thick and rife against the glass.”
Carolina De Robertis, The Invisible Mountain
