Judith Lewis Herman
“Traumatic events destroy the sustaining bonds between individual and community. Those who have survived learn that their sense of self, of worth, of humanity, depends upon a feeling of connection with others. The solidarity of a group provides the strongest protection against terror and despair, and the strongest antidote to traumatic experience. Trauma isolates; the group re-creates a sense of belonging. Trauma shames and stigmatizes; the group bears witness and affirms. Trauma degrades the victim; the group exalts her. Trauma dehumanizes the victim; the group restores her humanity.
Repeatedly in the testimony of survivors there comes a moment when a sense of connection is restored by another person’s unaffected display of generosity. Something in herself that the victim believes to be irretrievably destroyed---faith, decency, courage---is reawakened by an example of common altruism. Mirrored in the actions of others, the survivor recognizes and reclaims a lost part of herself. At that moment, the survivor begins to rejoin the human commonality...”

Holly Smale
“We each have our own language.
Our own way of thinking, of talking to ourselves, of making sense of the world and putting it in order. A narration style that is ours and ours alone.
That's why some of us connect and some of us don't.
Because even though we can only live in our own heads, sometimes - every now and then - we meet a person we can talk to without speaking at all: whose story we can read, without even trying.”
Holly Smale, Sunny Side Up

Mohsin Hamid
“Secrets make life more interesting. You can be in a crowded room with someone and touch them without touching, just with a look, because they know a part of you no one else knows. And whenever you're with them, the two of you are alone, because the you they see no one else can.”
Mohsin Hamid, Moth Smoke

“I believe in real soul connections. Some that can change the course of our lives. No matter how far the distance is between the souls, they are always joined at the heart of Source.”

“The universe whispered it's him, but I sent you away ~ I tested our connection and left it to fate,
Years have passed and others have come into our lives, but here we are again, meeting another time.
Our timing is off, so we set our connection free once again, trusting the winds of fate and the synchronicity it sends.”
Nikki Rowe

Brené Brown
“Als het niets meer kan schelen wat anderen denken, verliezen we ons vermogen tot verbinding. Maar als we onszelf laten bepalen door wat anderen denken, verliezen we de moed om ons kwetsbaar op te stellen. De oplossing is om heel duidelijk voor ogen te krijgen wiens mening voor jou echt telt. Het moeten de mensen zijn die niet van je houden óndanks je onvolmaaktheden en kwetsbaarheden, maar óm je onvolmaaktheden en kwetsbaarheden. Als je op je gezicht ligt in de arena, zijn dat de mensen die je overeind zullen helpen en zullen bevestigen dat de val echt klote was, en je er vervolgens aan herinneren dat je dapper bent geweest en dat zij er ook de volgende keer zullen zijn om het zand van je af te kloppen. Neem ook mensen op die dapper genoeg zijn om te zeggen: ‘Daar ben ik het niet mee eens,’ of: ‘Ik denk dat je ernaast zit,’ en die je vragen zullen stellen als ze je dingen zien doen die indruisen tegen je waarden en normen.”
Brené Brown, Rising Strong

Jay McInerney
“The bald girl i emblematic of the problem. The problem is, for some reason you think you are going to meet the kind of girl who is not the kind of girl who would be at a place like this at this time of the morning. When you meet her you are going to tell her that what you really want is a house in the country with a a garden. New York, the club scene, bald women - you're tired of all that. Your presence here is only a matter of conducting an experiment in limits, reminding yourself of what you aren't.”
Jay McInerney, Bright Lights, Big City

Elizabeth Drescher, Choosing Our Religion: The Spiritual Lives of America's Nones

“The journey of life is much about connections! One thing connects with another to bring another thing! When things get connected well, things work well! The right connections between all the things we do during the day show what we did with our lives at the end of the day and how we lived our entire days on earth to leave worthy and indelible footprints or an otherwise footprint! Mind your connections!”
Ernest Agyemang Yeboah

Eliza Maxwell

Somtehing as simple as a stranger on the other end of the line willing to listen. Or a crotchety old man who believed he knew best.

Eliza Maxwell, The Widow's Watcher

“Seek Connection Not Just Attention Because It Lasts Longer.”
