American Panda by Gloria Chao
"This was a fantastic read! I blew through the first half in one night. It reads so easily and reminded me of college and Mei was more relatable than I expected :)

When I first picked this up, I was mainly interested in the diversity aspect. I fell..." Read more of this review »

She had a kind heart, though that is not of much use when it comes to the matter of self-preservation.

Katherine Applegate
“People don’t understand the word ruthless. They think it means ‘mean.’ It’s not about being mean. It’s about seeing the bright, clear line that leads from A to B. The line that goes from motive to means. Beginning to end. It’s about seeing that bright, clear line and not caring about anything but the beautiful fact that you can see the solution. Not caring about anything else but the perfection of it.”
Katherine Applegate

“1. Optimize potential.
2. Facilitate empowerment.
3. Implement visioning.
4. Strategize priorities.
5. Augment core structures.”
Connie Willis, Bellwether

“So, here you are
too foreign for home
too foreign for here.
Never enough for both.”
Ijeoma Umebinyuo, Questions for Ada

Henri-Frédéric Amiel
“Let mystery have its place in you; do not be always turning up your whole soil with the plowshare of self-examination, but leave a little fallow corner in your heart ready for any seed the winds may bring, and reserve a nook of shadow for the passing bird; keep a place in your heart for the unexpected guests, an altar for the unknown God. Then if a bird sing among your branches, do not be too eager to tame it. If you are conscious of something new - thought or feeling, wakening in the depths of your being - do not be in a hurry to let in light upon it, to look at it; let the springing germ have the protection of being forgotten, hedge it round with quiet, and do not break in upon its darkness.”
Henri-Frédéric Amiel, Amiel's Journal

Emily St. John Mandel
“The beauty of this world where almost everyone was gone. If hell is other people, what is a world with almost no people in it?”
Emily St. John Mandel, Station Eleven
