I'm a sucker for "two wounded souls help each other move forward" romances.

Trigger warnings: suicidal thoughts, on his part, rape in her backstory (not explicitly described), and death of a child in his backstory (not much of a spoiler).

“The definition of a good man is someone who makes the moral choice when temptation invites him to do otherwise. The definition of a hero is someone who makes that moral choice even when temptation, threat of reprisal, and the mores of his culture invite him to do otherwise.”
Lindsay Buroker, Encrypted

Natasha Pulley
“But Spanish and English aren't different languages, only extreme dialects of Latin. It's almost possible to translate word for word. Translation from a language unrelated to English is nothing to do with equivalent words. Whenever I'd tried to do that in Chinese I'd come out with unbroken nonsense. I had to forget the English, hang the meaning up in a well-lit gallery, stare at it hard, then describe it afresh.”
Natasha Pulley, The Bedlam Stacks

“Sardelle told him to bring me after I volunteered to dispose of a dirty diaper by incinerating it. I don’t know why. If you had seen the mess, you would know my suggestion wasn’t unreasonable. Were you going to remove the diaper from the baby before incinerating it? That wouldn’t have been necessary. I have pinpoint precision. I’m beginning to see why Sardelle suggested you come,”

“The definition of a hero changes depending on the needs of the person with the dictionary.”

“That’s too much power for one man to wield, too much temptation. The easier we make it to kill, the less time there is to master the art of knowing when not to.”
