Anna Kendrick
“It’s like, it’s like I have a different heart. The other girls have one kind of heart, and I have a different kind.” My mom was understandably confused. “Are you saying they’re mean?” “No . . . I don’t know.” Saying other kids were mean felt like I was saying I was more kind, which definitely wasn’t it—more anxious maybe, more sensitive. I guess all I was feeling was that I was different. Sometimes I’ll be at work or a party and get that same feeling. I am not like these people. I don’t know what I’m doing here. And it comforts me to know that I felt that way as a child, too. Maybe that should make me feel worse, but it makes me calm and resolved. I’ve been prepared to be an outsider most of my life.”
Anna Kendrick, Scrappy Little Nobody

Margaret Atwood
“You don’t believe the sky is falling until a chunk of it falls on you.”
Margaret Atwood, The Testaments

Leigh Bardugo
“Fear is a phoenix. You can watch it burn a thousand times and still it will return.”
Leigh Bardugo, Crooked Kingdom

Sara  Barnard
“I want the world, I think. Even if it scares me.”
Sara Barnard, A Quiet Kind of Thunder

Anna Kendrick
“I gave up on being Nice. I started putting more value on other qualities instead: passion, bravery, intelligence, practicality, humor, patience, fairness, sensitivity. Those”
Anna Kendrick, Scrappy Little Nobody
