Libba Bray
“No one asks how or what I am doing. They could not care less. We’re all looking glasses, we girls, existing only to reflect their images back to them as they’d like to be seen. Hollow vessels of girls to be rinsed of our own ambitions, wants, and opinions, just waiting to be filled with the cool, tepid water of gracious compliance.
A fissure forms in the vessel. I’m cracking open.”
Libba Bray, A Great and Terrible Beauty

“I have been finding treasures in places I did not want to search. I have been hearing wisdom from tongues I did not want to listen. I have been finding beauty where I did not want to look. And I have learned so much from journeys I did not want to take. Forgive me, O Gracious One; for I have been closing my ears and eyes for too long. I have learned that miracles are only called miracles because they are often witnessed by only those who can can see through all of life's illusions. I am ready to see what really exists on other side, what exists behind the blinds, and taste all the ugly fruit instead of all that looks right, plump and ripe.”
Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem

“The belief to finish TODAY’S work TOMORROW is like a MIRAGE in the desert.

Shahenshah Hafeez Khan

Ibram X. Kendi
“But for all of that life shaping power, race is a mirage, which doesn't lessen its force. We are what we see ourselves as, whether what we see exists or not. We are what people see us as, whether what they see exists or not. What people see in themselves and others has meaning and manifests itself in ideas and actions in policies even if what they see is an illusion. Race is a mirage, but one that we do well to see, while never forgetting it is a mirage, never forgetting that its the powerful light of racist power that makes the mirage.”
Ibram X. Kendi, How to Be an Antiracist

“A Mirage

It glitters.
It is extraordinarily appealing.
Unbelievably beautiful.
It possesses all the ingredients of reality,
Except the reality itself.
It is falsehood.
A fleeting hope.
A passing phase.
A false pool of water
On a desert road,
On a sunny, dry day.
It's an aberration.
It's a mirage”
Abiodun Fijabi

“Nothing is impossible, but still don't run to catch a mirage.”
