"so far, this is a very sweet little conversation that digs deep into the philosophy of hope--what it is, where we can find it, how is it different from related concepts like faith and wishful thinking? to be honest, I wasn't sure about the Platonic dialogue format at first, but it's very natural and overall a refreshing take."

Brit Bennett
“Her death hit in waves. Not a flood, but water lapping steadily at her ankles. You could drown in two inches of water. Maybe grief was the same.”
Brit Bennett, The Vanishing Half

Brit Bennett
“People thought that being one of a kind made you special. No, it just made you lonely. What was special was belonging with someone else.”
Brit Bennett, The Vanishing Half

Ted Simon
“In spite of wars and tourism and pictures by satellite, the world is just the same size it ever was. It is awesome to think how much of it I will never see. It is not a trick to go round these days, you can pay a lot of money and fly round it nonstop in less than forty-eight hours, but to know it, to smell it and feel it between your toes you have to crawl. There is no other way. Not flying, not floating. You have to stay on the ground and swallow the bugs as you go. Then the world is immense. The best you can do is to trace your long, infinitesimally thin line through the dust and extrapolate.”
Ted Simon, Jupiter's Travels

Brit Bennett
“When you married someone, you promised to love every person he would be. He promised to love every person she had been. And here they were, still trying, even though the past and the future were both mysteries.”
Brit Bennett, The Vanishing Half

Nelson Mandela
“And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
Nelson Mandela, Long Walk to Freedom
