Marjane Satrapi
“It's fear that makes us lose our conscience. It's also what transforms us into cowards.”
Marjane Satrapi, The Complete Persepolis

Marjane Satrapi
“The regime had understood that one person leaving her house while asking herself:
Are my trousers long enough?
Is my veil in place?
Can my make-up be seen?
Are they going to whip me?

No longer asks herself:
Where is my freedom of thought?
Where is my freedom of speech?
My life, is it liveable?
What's going on in the political prisons?”
Marjane Satrapi, The Complete Persepolis

Bell Hooks
“Love is a combination of care, commitment, knowledge, responsibility, respect and trust.”
bell hooks, Communion: The Female Search for Love

Annie Proulx
“You know, one of the tragedies of real life is that there is no background music.”
Annie Proulx

“Don’t grieve. Anything you lose comes round in another form.”
