This was a really powerful book. (And I don't intend that as a pun on the book's title!) And also an uncomfortable one to read. The depictions of the way power changes us and the ways in which it can be abused were intense, and I want to believe that ...more

Octavia E. Butler
“Kindness eases change
Love quiets fear”
Octavia E. Butler, Parable of the Talents

Octavia E. Butler
“Kindness eases change.
Love quiets fear.
And a sweet and powerful
Positive obsession
Blunts pain,
Diverts rage,
And engages each of us
In the greatest,
The most intense
Of our chosen struggles.”
Octavia E. Butler, Parable of the Talents

Octavia E. Butler
“To survive
Let the past
Teach you-
Past customs,
Struggles,
Leaders and thinkers.
Let
These
Help you.
Let them inspire you,
Warn you,
Give you strength.
But beware:
God is change.
Past is past.
What was
Cannot
Come again..

To survive,
know the past.
Let it touch you.
Then let
The past
Go.”
Octavia E. Butler, Parable of the Talents

Lewis Carroll

’The question is,’ said Alice, ‘whether you can make words mean so many different things.’

’The question is,’ said Humpty Dumpty, ‘which is to be master — that’s all.”
Lewis Carroll, Through the Looking Glass
