Aetherial Worlds by Tatyana Tolstaya

Origin by Dan Brown
"Rinse, wash, repeat Langdon's formula. Very strong attacks on the Catholic Church, sometimes feeling forced. Talks about cool technology, and feels like it was written after attending Singularity University, even mentioning its reading list"

Caitlin Moran
“It's difficult to see the glass ceiling because it's made of glass. Virtually invisible. What we need is for more birds to fly above it and shit all over it, so we can see it properly.”
Caitlin Moran, How to Be a Woman

Henry James
“She feels in italics and thinks in CAPITALS.”
Henry James

Ford Madox Ford
“You seduced a young woman in order to be able to finish your talks with her. You could not do that without living with her. You could not live with her without seducing her; but that was the by-product. The point is that you can't otherwise talk. You can't finish talks at street corners; in museums; even in drawing-rooms. You mayn't be in the mood when she is in the mood – for the intimate conversation that means the final communion of your souls. You have to wait together – for a week, for a year, for a lifetime, before the final intimate conversation may be attained...and exhausted. So that...

That in effect was love.”
Ford Madox Ford, Parade's End

Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious
“Tell me, what is it you plan to do

Mary Oliver

Sue Monk Kidd
“Someone who thinks death is the scariest thing doesn't know a thing about life.”
Sue Monk Kidd, The Secret Life of Bees
