Pema Chödrön
“we can let the circumstances of our lives harden us so that we become increasingly resentful and afraid, or we can let them soften us and make us kinder and more open to what scares us. We always have this choice.”
Pema Chödrön, The Places That Scare You: A Guide to Fearlessness in Difficult Times

“Practice the pause. Pause before judging. Pause before assuming. Pause before accusing. Pause whenever you're about to react harshly and you'll avoid doing and saying things you'll later regret.”
Lori Deschene

Trevor Noah
“Nelson Mandela once said, 'If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head. If you talk to him in his language, that goes to his heart.' He was so right. When you make the effort to speak someone else's language, even if it's just basic phrases here and there, you are saying to them, 'I understand that you have a culture and identity that exists beyond me. I see you as a human being”
Trevor Noah, Born a Crime: Stories From a South African Childhood

Tracey Garvis Graves
“A woman is like a tea bag; you never know how strong it is until it’s in hot water.”
Tracey Garvis Graves, The Girl He Used to Know

Paula Hawkins
“Cathy's a nice person, in a forceful sort of way. She makes you notice her niceness. Her niceness is writ large, it is her defining quality and she needs it acknowledged, often, daily almost, which can be tiring.”
Paula Hawkins, The Girl on the Train
