Fredrik Backman
“Men are what they are because of what they do. Not what they say.”
Fredrik Backman, A Man Called Ove

Andy Weir
“If a hiker gets lost in the mountains, people will coordinate a search. If a train crashes, people will line up to give blood. If an earthquake levels a city, people all over the world will send emergency supplies. This is so fundamentally human that it's found in every culture without exception. Yes, there are assholes who just don't care, but they're massively outnumbered by the people who do.”
Andy Weir, The Martian

Chanel Miller
“In fact I need you to know it was all true. The friendly guy who helps you move and assists senior citizens in the pool is the same guy who assaulted me. One person can be capable of both. Society often fails to wrap its head around the fact that these truths often coexist, they are not mutually exclusive. Bad qualities can hide inside a good person. That's the terrifying part.”
Chanel Miller, Know My Name

Sally  Thorne
“Books were, and always would be, something a little magic and something to respect.”
Sally Thorne, The Hating Game

Sally  Thorne
“The trick is to find that one person who can give it back as good as they can take it.”
Sally Thorne, The Hating Game
