“A wise man once said that if a book was not worth reading twice it was not worth reading once.”
Viktor Arnar Ingólfsson, House of Evidence

“A woman who might have been a good mother and a good grandmother, had not a quirk of nature put her in the wrong body many years ago....

What an ordeal, to have to conduct one's life in such deception, just to be able to live in peace with someone you love. Perhaps things will change on day, and people will be able to live the way they were created.”
