I love how changing or adding just a couple of words can modify entire settings, and how one line of dialogue can reveal motives and back stories.

Becoming a Fierce Woman

Usually when I tell someone I'm divorced, they express sympathy, to which I respond by telling them it was the greatest decision I've ever made. Not only did I leave a destructive relationship, but the courage it took me to leave and make it on my own, never went away.

Tom Robbins
“Women are tough and rather coarse. They were built for the raw, crude work of bearing children. You'd be amazed at what they can do when they divert that baby-hatching energy into some other enterprise.”
Tom Robbins, Even Cowgirls Get the Blues

Aldous Huxley
“There will be in the next generation or so a pharmacological method of making people love their servitude and producing dictatorship without tears, so to speak, producing a kind of painless concentration camp for entire societies so that people will in fact have their liberties taken away from them but will rather enjoy it.”
Aldous Huxley

“The more powerful and original a mind, the more it will incline towards the religion of solitude.”
