Suzanne Simard
“Plants are attuned to one another's strengths and weaknesses, elegantly giving and taking to attain exquisite balance. There is grace in complexity, in actions cohering, in sum totals.”
Suzanne Simard, Finding the Mother Tree: Discovering the Wisdom of the Forest

Torrey Peters
“motherhood is just some vague test designed to ensure that everyone feels inadequate.”
Torrey Peters, Detransition, Baby

Torrey Peters
“Why does she deserve to be so angry? What has she truly lost? Quietly, to herself, she answers her own question: I have lost a child.
The statement jolts her. She hears in her own voice a latch sliding into place. She says it again, phrased slightly differently, I have lost my child. Is it grief she feels? Is grief even a feeling to which she is entitled?”
Torrey Peters, Detransition, Baby

Suzanne Simard
“Such a marvel, the tenacity of the buds to surge with life every spring, to greet the lengthening days and warming weather with exuberance, no matter what hardships were brought by winter.”
Suzanne Simard, Finding the Mother Tree: Discovering the Wisdom of the Forest

“From Dr. J Marion Sims’s 19th Century gynecological surgery experiments on unanesthetized enslaved Black women to Tuskegee experiment on Black men and their families to careless uranium mining on Indigenous reservations and nuclear weapons testing that left Pacific Islanders to live and die with the nuclear fallout, the devaluing of Black American lives and Indigenous lives around the world has played a key role in scientific experiment and development.”
Chanda Prescod-Weinstein, The Disordered Cosmos: A Journey into Dark Matter, Spacetime, and Dreams Deferred
