Hayao Miyazaki
“I’ve become skeptical of the unwritten rule that just because a boy and girl appear in the same feature, a romance must ensue. Rather, I want to portray a slightly different relationship, one where the two mutually inspire each other to live - if I’m able to, then perhaps I’ll be closer to portraying a true expression of love.”
Hayao Miyazaki

Margaret Atwood
“And yet it disturbs me to learn I have hurt someone unintentionally. I want all my hurts to be intentional.”
Margaret Atwood, Cat's Eye

Simone de Beauvoir
“I am too intelligent, too demanding, and too resourceful for anyone to be able to take charge of me entirely. No one knows me or loves me completely. I have only myself”
Simone de Beauvoir

Kurt Vonnegut
“Here we are, trapped in the amber of the moment. There is no why.”
Kurt Vonnegut

George Sand
“The old woman I shall become will be quite different from the woman I am now. Another I is beginning.”
George Sand
