“But sometimes," whispers Sonja, " things really don't work out. You see it all the time; how things don't work out at all. People suddenly maimed, broken, dead, and then things really didn't work out - or they did, they worked out terribly. And it's not supposed to happen that way, is it, that things work out terribly? Or that nothing you ever dreamed of comes to anything? The continents you wanted to explore turn out to be stripped of resources, drained and desolate. Stuntedness as far as the eye can see, and you know perfectly well that you should make the journey back to where you came from. That you have to change course and scrape yourself together, but how do you fool yourself that it was better in the place you left? The place you came from no longer exists, and I think I've lost the right to imagine my future.”
Dorthe Nors, Spejl, skulder, blink

“There are two reasons why an organization is a good place to begin changing the world. First, an organization sells convictions rather than products. Second, selling convictions is all about ideals.”
Dorthe Nors, Karate Chop

“It’s hard to find clothes to fit the body you have, and it’s hard to find words to fit the people you love”
