Rupi Kaur
“Loneliness is a sign you are in desperate need of yourself.”
Rupi Kaur, Milk and Honey

Rupi Kaur
“no was a bad word in my hone
no was met with the lash
erased from our vocabulary
beaten out of our backs
till we became well-behaved kids
who obediently nodded to yes to everything
when he climbed on top of me
every part of my body wanted to reject it
but i couldn't say no to save my life
when i tried to scream
all that escaped me was silence
i heard no pounding her fist
on the roof of my mouth
begging to let her out
but i had not put up the exit sign
never built the emergency staircase
there was no trapdoor for no to escape from
i want to ask all the
parents and guardians a question
what use was obedience then
when there were hands
that were not mine inside me

- how can i verbalize consent as an adult if i was never taught to as a child”
Rupi Kaur, The Sun and Her Flowers

Neil Gaiman
“I lived in books more than I lived anywhere else.”
Neil Gaiman, The Ocean at the End of the Lane

Rupi Kaur
“The kindest words my father said to me
Women like you drown oceans.”
Rupi Kaur, Milk and Honey

Leigh Bardugo
“Beauty was your armor. Fragile stuff, all show. But what's inside you? That's steel. It's brave and unbreakable. And it doesn't need fixing.”
Leigh Bardugo, Ruin and Rising
