"While I do zone out for some of the more lengthy period cultural items, her elegant insults always bring me back.

While I can pretty much see where things are going from here (having seen a few rom-coms) I'm interested to see how she get's there. Also I like Elizabeth."

""at some time in any good party all the men who are really men will simply have to go out. It’s extremely stupid, but it’s their nature and can’t be dodged, believe me."

Lieber, at least at this stage of the book, has some fiercely independent women who he is unequivocal about being the equals of the men. Not bad for 1935."

“Maybe I’m strange and perverse, but I’ve always thought there was something sexy about a compelling argument.”
Therese Doucet, A Lost Argument

Otto von Bismarck
“Politics is the art of the possible, the attainable — the art of the next best”
Otto von Bismarck

Olga Grushin
“In anyone's life there can be only a few such moments - moments when a long, ringing hush fills your hearing, the world stands still as if under a magic spell, and thoughts and feelings course freely through your being, traversing the whole of eternity in the duration of a minute, so that when time resumes and you return from whatever nameless, dazzling void you briefly inhabited, you find yourself changed, changed irrevocably, and from then on, whether you want it or not, your life flows in a different direction. This was such a moment for me.”
Olga Grushin, The Dream Life of Sukhanov

Catherynne M. Valente
“Hats have power. Hats can change you into someone else.”
Catherynne M. Valente, The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making

Margaret Atwood
“Nothing changes instantaneously: in a gradually heating bathtub, you'd be boiled to death before you knew it. There were stories in the newspapers, of course, corpses in ditches or the woods, bludgeoned to death or mutilated, interfered with, as they used to say, but they were about other women, and the men who did such things were other men. None of them were the men we knew. The newspaper stories were like dreams to us, bad dreams dreamt by others. How awful, we would say, and they were, but they were awful without being believable. There were too melodramatic, they had a dimension that was not the dimension of our lives. We were the people who were not in the papers. We lived in the blank white spaces at the edges of print. It gave us more freedom.”
Margaret Atwood, The Handmaid's Tale
