“There's magic in recognizing a kindred spirit, and an even greater power in letting yourself love them. When it scares you, let it - that's your ego letting go.”
Jacqueline Koyanagi, Ascension

“Love is like sunlight,” she said when I didn't respond. “You can give all of yourself to someone and still have all of yourself left to give to others, and to yourself. To your work. To anything or anyone you choose. Love isn't like food; you won't starve anyone by giving It freely. It's not a finite resource.”
Jacqueline Koyanagi, Ascension

“Treatments worked well enough for us to get by. Most people lived into old age, but the medication, like everything else, has never been free. Life was a privilege, not a right, apparently. Something you had to struggle for when you were unlucky enough to be born at the intersection of poverty and bad genes.”
Jacqueline Koyanagi, Ascension

Many of the books on your shelves I find intriguing.

Katherine I have never read anything by Stephen King. Not even "On Writing". Should I have, in your opinion?
