Confessions of a Mask by Yukio Mishima
“When a boy…discovers that he is more given into introspection and consciousness of self than other boys his age, he easily falls into the error of believing it is because he is more mature than they. This was certainly a mistake in my case. Rather, it was because the other boys had no such need of understanding themselves as I had: they could be their natural selves, whereas I was to play a part, a fact that would require considerable understanding and study. So it was not my maturity but my sense of uneasiness, my uncertainty that was forcing me to gain control over my consciousness. Because such consciousness was simply a steppingstone to aberration and my present thinking was nothing but uncertain and haphazard guesswork.”
Yukio Mishima

The Cider House Rules by John Irving
“Here is the trap you are in.... And it's not my trap—I haven't trapped you. Because abortions are illegal, women who need and want them have no choice in the matter, and you—because you know how to perform them—have no choice, either. What has been violated here is your freedom of choice, and every woman's freedom of choice, too. If abortion was legal, a woman would have a choice—and so would you. You could feel free not to do it because someone else would. But the way it is, you're trapped. Women are trapped. Women are victims, and so are you.”
John Irving

Weight Loss for People Who Feel Too Much by Colette Baron-Reid
"There are a lot of emotional eaters out there. This book is specifically for them, I guess. I know that I'm an emotional eater, but couldn't connect fully to the book. I think that parts were good, like writing down one's feelings and the quizzes...." Read more of this review »

"Billed as a book about weight loss for Highly Sensitive Persons (HSPs), I thought this would be a great read. It both is and isn’t. The first half of the book I got through very quickly, and then I got bored, as the book felt like it was just repe..." Read more of this review »
Weight Loss for People Who Feel Too Much by Colette Baron-Reid
"I liked this book... I really did. I just wasn't a fan of the nutrition info. I think she brings a really important element to the table, the mental/spiritual side of weight loss. As someone who has lost weight, the nutrition is the easy part (int..." Read more of this review »

“At night too, she puzzled the mystery of her desperate need of kindness. As other girls prayed for handsomeness in a lover, or for wealth, or for power, or for poetry, she had prayed fervently: let him be kind.”
Anaïs Nin, A Spy in the House of Love

“cruel mothers are still mothers. they make us wars. they make us revolution. they teach us the truth. early. mothers are humans. who sometimes give birth to their pain. instead of children. – hate”

“Because he says he can't stand you and you act like you can't stand him, and whenever a man and a woman behave like that toward each other, it usually means something's going on.”
Helen Oyeyemi, Boy, Snow, Bird

“Later he´ll be drunk in extremis and will only be able to speak the esperanto of alcoholics, which is a language full of stutterings from the geological layers of our animal ancestors”
