“We are strong—our enemies have kept us that way. They are the secret of our strength. We would not have to be strong if they were not always rising up from every direction,”
Rebecca Kanner, Esther

“Without them we would not know that we can rise up again after any attack, no matter how brutal. But I fear we have met an enemy too big to defeat with strength alone. We will need wisdom and cunning to survive.”
Rebecca Kanner, Esther

“The bravest thing a person can do is survive when it would seem to most that little is left. You have survived to help someone,”
Rebecca Kanner, Esther

Henry James

George Saunders, The Braindead Megaphone

“A self is not something static, tied up in a pretty parcel and handed to the child, finished and complete. A self is always becoming.”
