“It's a funny thing about life, once you begin to take note of the things you are grateful for, you begin to lose sight of the things that you lack.”

“I just want to be someone, to mean something to anyone…”
Charlotte Eriksson

Carson McCullers
“Her face felt like it was scattered in pieces and she could not keep it straight. The feeling was a whole lot worse than being hungry for any dinner, yet it was like that. I want--I want--I want--was all that she could think about--but just what this real want was she did no know.”
Carson McCullers, The Heart Is a Lonely Hunter

Matt Haig
“Nora had always had a problem accepting herself. From as far back as she could remember, she'd had the sense that she wasn't enough. Her parents who both had their own insecurities, had encouraged that idea.
She imagined, now, what it would be like to accept herself completely. Every mistake she had ever made. Every mark on her body. Every dream she had ever made. Every mark on her body. Every dream she hadn't reached or pain she had felt. Every lust or longing she had suppressed.
She imagined accepting it all. The way she accepted nature. The way she accepted a glacier or a puffin or the breach of a whale.
She imagined seeing herself as just another brilliant freak of nature. Just another sentient animal, trying her best.
And in doing so, she imagined what it was like to be free.”
Matt Haig, The Midnight Library

Charlotte Eriksson
“I’ve been trying to stay real
and true and proud of who I am,
all those ideals of how to look
I’ve been trying not to care.

But I’m still holding my breath,
I ‘m still watching every step.
I’m still tip-toeing away,
when I’m getting to ashamed of myself.

I don’t want to be your letdown,
I’m scared like hell I’m not enough.
I don’t wanna be
your failure anymore.
— The Glass Child, Letdown”
Charlotte Eriksson

Sanhita Baruah
“A world full of "certainties"
All the plans, all the vanities.
Where black covers the white
Suited in "confidence"- the constant fight.
A million roads I dream to take
One destination, knowing not I turn where.
A green veil covers for two years, some two decades.
But the "plan" awaits, new roads to make.
I pant, I struggle, I do my best
While they say,
"You are, dear, but so inadequate".”
Sanhita Baruah

Alexandra Katehakis
“Perhaps the most important sexual tool is consciousness. If we think we are "not enough" or "too much," we surely are. Similarly, when you give a gift, create artwork, or perform any task with the thought that it's "not enough" or "too much," it surely will be.”
Alexandra Katehakis, Mirror of Intimacy: Daily Reflections on Emotional and Erotic Intelligence

Christina Engela
“How many innocent victims of hate crime does it take before it becomes wrong?

For us, one is already too many. For them, a thousand is not enough.”
Christina Engela, The Time Saving Agency

“Whatever we have in the glory of man is "away". Those are just not enough before we go "home" to the glory of God.”

Nitya Prakash
“I’m not like others. I don’t drop hints. I need you, I tell you. I don’t play games. I’m done with you and you’ll know in so many words. I express how I feel. I let you know what I want. Don’t assume. I over emote but not under play. I’m too much at times but never ‘not enough’.”
Nitya Prakash

J.R. Rim
“Reaching for the treasure is not enough, one must bring it back!”
J.R. Rim

Val McDermid
“It wasn't enough but it was a start. It might keep him going...”
Val McDermid, Insidious Intent

“This life is a constant suffering of being too much and still not enough.”
Sherry Namdeo

Ufuoma Apoki
“Good intentions do not always suffice.”
Ufuoma Apoki

“The glow of the steetlamps sat heavy and thick above me. As I walked aimlessly, in the direction of downtown, I returned to my theories. That Mizuko and I shared the pictorial equivalent of DNA. That a sympathetic magic existed between us, no matter how far apart we were pulled. That we defied physical laws of time and space, waves, gravity, the rules laid down by physicists which governed our physical universe (earthquakes, tsunamis) and physical bodies. And yet somehow our connection had led to the opposite of intimacy. My search had led to its opposite. I had never felt so isolated and disconnected, even from myself.”
Olivia Sudjic, Sympathy

Anne Østby
“It's like fårikål." Maya's tone is matter-of-fact recalling the traditional pungent dish of boiled cabbage and mutton with bone, seasoned with whole black peppercorns. "There's nothing better when you only get it once in a while. Seasonally. But if it were on your plate every day, you'd eventually start to lose your appetite for mutton. Sometimes the smell is enough. Or just the thought of it fills you up."
Lisbeth is not the only one grinning now, she knows Kat and Sina are picturing the same thing she is: a naked Steinar with twisted ram's horns covering his ears. His pointy nose quivering, sniffing boiled cabbage and peppercorns.”
Anne Østby, Pieces of Happiness: A Novel of Friendship, Hope and Chocolate

“Discipline wins over motivation anytime. For motivation we have to find inspiration around us to get things done and sometimes the inspiration is not enough. But, with discipline we get things done with or without inspiration.”
Purvi Raniga
