Hermann Hesse
“The day had gone by just as days go by. I had killed it in accordance with my primitive and retiring way of life.”
Hermann Hesse, Steppenwolf

Kamala Suraiyya Das
“All round me are words, and words and words,
They grow on me like leaves, they never
Seem to stop their slow growing
From within... But I tell my self, words
Are a nuisance, beware of them, they
Can be so many things, a
Chasm where running feet must pause, to
Look, a sea with paralyzing waves,
A blast of burning air or,
A knife most willing to cut your best
Friend's throat... Words are a nuisance, but.
They grow on me like leaves on a tree,
They never seem to stop their coming,
From a silence, somewhere deep within...”
Kamala Suraiyya Das, Summer in Calcutta

Michelle Obama
“Now I think it’s one of the most useless questions an adult can ask a child—What do you want to be when you grow up? As if growing up is finite. As if at some point you become something and that’s the end.”
Michelle Obama, Becoming

Shivya Nath
“How could I explain in words my craving for freedom, that longing for anonymity, the need to distance myself from everything I knew in my universe?”
Shivya Nath, The Shooting Star

John O'Leary
“seventh choice to ignite a radically inspired life: choose to let go of fear and operate, lead, and live from a place of unconditional love.”
John O'Leary, On Fire: The 7 Choices to Ignite a Radically Inspired Life
