Clarissa Pinkola Estés
“Sometimes the one who is running from the Life/Death/Life nature insists on thinking of love as a boon only. Yet love in its fullest form is a series of deaths and rebirths. We let go of one phase, one aspect of love, and enter another. Passion dies and is brought back. Pain is chased away and surfaces another time. To love means to embrace and at the same time to withstand many endings, and many many beginnings- all in the same relationship.”
Clarissa Pinkola Estés, Women Who Run With the Wolves

Friedrich Schiller
“Unsere Träume, Unsere Sehnsüchte, und bunten Hoffnungen wollen ernst und wichtig genommen werden.

Wer sie verdrängt, unterdrückt das Beste in sich und wird ein leerer Mensch.”

Mary Gaitskill
“Writing is.... being able to take something whole and fiercely alive that exists inside you in some unknowable combination of thought, feeling, physicality, and spirit, and to then store it like a genie in tense, tiny black symbols on a calm white page. If the wrong reader comes across the words, they will remain just words. But for the right readers, your vision blooms off the page and is absorbed into their minds like smoke, where it will re-form, whole and alive, fully adapted to its new environment.”
Mary Gaitskill

Friedrich Schiller
“Did you think the lion was sleeping because he didn't roar?”
Friedrich Schiller, Die Verschwörung des Fiesco zu Genua

Amelia Gray
“Today, it's possible to read both erotica and books written for children without fear of social castigation.”
Amelia Gray
