“It was an intense embrace, no awkwardness, no holding back, the kind of hug two people can only achieve after long intimacy, but anyone can give in an instant to a stuffed bear.”
Ada Palmer, Seven Surrenders

Ada Palmer
“The great breakthrough of our age is supposed to be that we measure success by happiness, admiring a man for how much he enjoyed his life, rather than how much wealth or fame he hoarded, that old race with no finish line. Diogenes with his barrel and his sunlight lived every hour of his life content, while Alexander fought and bled, mourned friends, faced enemies, and died unsatisfied. Diogenes is greater. Or does that past-tainted inner part of you—the part that still parses ‘thee’ and ‘thou’ and ‘he’ and ‘she’—still think that happiness alone is not achievement without legacy? Diogenes has a legacy. Diogenes ruled nothing, wrote nothing, taught nothing except by the example of his life to passersby, but, so impressed were those bypassers, that, after the better part of three millennia, we still know this about him.”
Ada Palmer, Seven Surrenders

“Never create a personal enemy. Always keep layers of minions between yourself and someone you destroy, it’s safer that way.”
Ada Palmer, Seven Surrenders

“The more people insist that feminism has won, the more they blind themselves to its remaining foes.”
Ada Palmer, Seven Surrenders
