Book cover for Paper Wishes
If I stand tall with my feet bare, I can pretend the dirt feels like sand here. But when I open my mouth to speak, the dirt no longer feels like sand. It sticks to my lips and tongue like red mud. It coats my throat so that I cannot speak. ...more
Hannah Moskowitz
“If this were a fairy tale, this would be the part where the fishboy appears and Diana shoots him through the heart. Because he is a tragic hero, he's our fucking Gatsby, and he lived for his fish and he has to die for his fish. He would never let my fake authority, condoning his abandonment, making up rules about what's okay just to save his life, convince him to give up his family. He would never leave.
He would know that without him, none of us will be as good. Me, without a friend; and the fish, without a brother; and the island, without a story; and Diana, without her something real, we will all be a little bit less than we were before we knew him.
So he wouldn't leave. Not until I could come with him. And I have never been less able to leave than I am now.
But this isn't a fairy tale, and he doesn't appear. We stand here for a long time.
He really left.
Because it was all that we could do.”
Hannah Moskowitz, Teeth

Marge Piercy
“A strong woman is a woman determined to do something others are determined not be done”
Marge Piercy

Ted Chiang
“Past and future are the same, and we cannot change either, only know them more fully. My journey to the past had changed nothing, but what I had learned had changed everything, and I understood that it could not have been otherwise. If our lives are tales that Allah tells, then we are the audience as well as the players, and it is by living these tales that we receive their lessons.”
Ted Chiang, The Merchant and the Alchemist's Gate

Delphine de Vigan
“But sometimes the night reveals the only truth that time passes and things will never be seen the same again.”
Delphine de Vigan, No and Me

Ruta Sepetys
“Whether love of friend, love of country, love of God, or even love of enemy—love reveals to us the truly miraculous nature of the human spirit.”
Ruta Sepetys, Between Shades of Gray
