Book cover for Washington Square
"Oh," said Catherine, with some eagerness, "it doesn't take long to like a person—when once you begin."
Mary DeTurris Poust
“Jesus tells us: “Love your neighbor as yourself” (Mk 12:31). How can we love our neighbor if we can’t or won’t love ourselves, at least a little? When we hold ourselves to unrealistic standards, that perfectionist attitude can’t help but trickle down. It becomes harder to have compassion for others if we have no compassion for ourselves.”
Mary DeTurris Poust, Cravings: A Catholic Wrestles with Food, Self-Image, and God

Julie Lythcott-Haims
“If you’re overfocused on your kid, you’re quite likely underfocusing on your own passion. Despite what you may think, your kid is not your passion. If you treat them as if they are, you’re placing them in the very untenable and unhealthy role of trying to bring fulfillment to your life. Support your kid’s interests, yes. Be proud—very proud—of them. But find your own passion and purpose. For your kid’s sake and your own, you must.”
Julie Lythcott-Haims, How to Raise an Adult: Break Free of the Overparenting Trap and Prepare Your Kid for Success

Geneen Roth
“If we think our job here on earth is to fix ourselves, we will keep looking for the broken places. If we believe our job is to be kind, we will keep lavishing love on ourselves.”
Geneen Roth

William Morris
“Nothing useless can be truly beautiful.”
William Morris

Frida Kahlo
“The most important thing for everyone in Gringolandia is to have ambition and become 'somebody,' and frankly, I don't have the least ambition to become anybody.”
Frida Kahlo
