“You aren't those words. You aren't the shouts and names. You aren't the awful things spat at you like flavorless gum. You aren't the punches or the bruises they cause. You aren't the blood running from your nose. You aren't under their control. You are not theirs.

Inside you is always the part of you that no one can touch. You are you. You are your own and inside you is the universe. You can be whatever you want. You can be anyone.

Don't be afraid. You don't have to be afraid anymore.”
Salla Simukka, As Red as Blood

“Do not seek power for revenge. Seek power in order to avoid situations that would make you want revenge.”
Salla Simukka, As Red as Blood

“Better off alone than in bad company.”
Salla Simukka, As Red as Blood
