Claire Dederer
“Reality is an easy commodity in the Front Range. There's weather, and there are animals that are thinking about eating you, and there's all that beauty. It sort of whomps you on the head. It's strange that we use the word "unreal" to describe beauty-it's my experience that beauty drags us by the hair into the real.”
Claire Dederer, Poser: My Life in Twenty-three Yoga Poses

Suzy Krause
“Do you know how much of my life I spent waiting for something terrible to happen? I was obsessed with it, consumed by it I spent every moment dreading it--and all of a sudden, here it was, and it was every bit as awful as I'd imagined it would be And then . . . life went on. I realized then how pointless and powerless fear is . . . .”
Suzy Krause, Valencia and Valentine

Amy  Chua
“As a purely mathematical fact, people who sleep less live more.”
Amy Chua, Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother

“A typical race morning usually starts out looking like a scene from a zombie movie: individuals or pairs of people walking down a deserted street, all headed in the same direction.... Inevitably, regardless of the weather, U2's "Beautiful Day" streams out of loudspeakers.”
Sarah Bowen Shea, Train Like a Mother: How to Get Across Any Finish Line - and Not Lose Your Family, Job, or Sanity

Dietrich Bonhoeffer
“By judging others we blind ourselves to our own evil and to the grace which others are just as entitled to as we are.”
Dietrich Bonhoeffer, The Cost of Discipleship
