“I think “majority” is one of my least favorite words. It’s so often used to justify bad decisions.”
Emma Newman, Planetfall

“That scared me more than anything, sometimes; the noise of my thoughts, the sense that even the space inside myself wasn't safe.”
Emma Newman, Planetfall

“Am I just a mosaic of myself, held in the shape of a whole person?”
Emma Newman, Planetfall
