Maria Turtschaninoff
“She does not know how to feel safe.” As I said it I knew it was true. “We will have to teach her how.”
Maria Turtschaninoff, Maresi

Lois McMaster Bujold
“It is imperfect. So are all things trapped in time. You are brilliant, nonetheless. How fortunate for Us that We thirst for glorious souls rather than faultless ones, or We should be parched indeed, and most lonely in Our perfect righteousness. Carry on imperfectly, shining Ista.”
Lois McMaster Bujold, Paladin of Souls

Ta-Nehisi Coates
“You have been cast into a race in which the wind is always at your face and the hounds are always at your heels. And to varying degrees this is true of all life. The difference is that you do not have the privilege of living in ignorance of this essential fact.”
Ta-Nehisi Coates, Between the World and Me

“I was failing Witching 101 and being critiqued by dachshunds. This was so not my night.”
Delia James, By Familiar Means

“I saw the same thing in him as I had seen in the eyes of the men who stole me and my sisters that night, and in the eyes of the men who had sold me for silver and gold: to them I am a thing.”
Maria Turtschaninoff, Naondel
