Julie Berry
“Lies are worse than no comfort at all. Especially to a mind already scorched by the truth" -Hades”
Julie Berry, Lovely War

Pam Houston
“I’m just saying, I guess, there’s another version, after this version, to look forward to. Because of wisdom or hormones or just enough years going by. If you live long enough you quit chasing the things that hurt you; you eventually learn to hear the sound of your own voice.”
Pam Houston, Deep Creek: Finding Hope in the High Country

Edith Wharton
“When I had been there a little longer, and had seen this phase of crystal clearness followed by long stretches of sunless cold; when the storms of February had pitched their white tents about the devoted village and the wild cavalry of March winds had charged down to their support; I began to understand why Starkfield emerged from its six months’ siege like a starved garrison capitulating without quarter.”
Edith Wharton

Joseph O'Connor
“Oh so maddening, how memory works, or doesn’t work, when you are old. Every square in a counterpane you owned when you were five, you remember the sequence, the colours. But then people were so important to you, and now even their names are melted away.”
Joseph O'Connor, Ghost Light

“There was no peace in slavery, for every day under the rule of another is a day of war.”
Ta-Nehisi Coates, The Water Dancer
