Jeanette Winterson
“The Buddhists say there are 149 ways to God. I'm not looking for God, only for myself, and that is far more complicated. God has had a great deal written about Him; nothing has been written about me. God is bigger, like my mother, easier to find, even in the dark. I could be anywhere, and since I can't describe myself I can't ask for help.”
Jeanette Winterson, Sexing the Cherry

Jeanette Winterson
“There are many forms of love and affection, some people can spend their whole lives together without knowing each other's names. Naming is a difficult and time-consuming process; it concerns essences, and it means power. But on the wild nights who can call you home? Only the one who knows your name.”
Jeanette Winterson, Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit

Marlena de Blasi
“Living as a couple never means that each gets half. You must take turns at giving more than getting. It’s not the same as a bow to the other whether to dine out rather than in, or which one gets massaged that evening with oil of calendula; there are seasons in the life of a couple that function, I think, a little like a night watch. One stands guard, often for a long time, providing the serenity in which the other can work at something. Usually that something is sinewy and full of spines. One goes inside the dark place while the other one stays outside, holding up the moon.”
Marlena De Blasi, A Thousand Days in Venice

Helen Keller
“...our enjoyment of the great works of literature depends more upon the depth of our sympathy than upon our understanding.”
Helen Keller, The Story of My Life

Helen Keller
“When we do the best that we can, we never know what miracle is wrought in our life, or in the life of another.”
Helen Keller
