Shannon   Thomas
“By the time survivors are compelled to leave their psychologically abusive relationships, they do not see any other viable option but to leave. They have tried anything and everything to keep their relationship going. No matter how hard they tried to fit the mold the abuser wanted, it was never enough.”
Shannon Thomas, Healing from Hidden Abuse: A Journey Through the Stages of Recovery from Psychological Abuse

Cal Newport
“Digital minimalism definitively does not reject the innovations of the internet age, but instead rejects the way so many people currently engage with these tools.”
Cal Newport, Digital Minimalism: Choosing a Focused Life in a Noisy World

Simone de Beauvoir
“Literature takes its revenge on reality by making it the slave of fiction.”
Simone de Beauvoir, Memoirs of a Dutiful Daughter

Christina Stead
“By smiling, we turn devils into angels, enemies into friends; the cup of poison becomes the loving cup.”
Christina Stead, The Man Who Loved Children

Charlotte Joko Beck
“But sitting is not something that we do for a year or two with the idea of mastering it. Sitting is something we do for a lifetime. There is no end to the opening up that is possible for a human being. Eventually we see that we are the limitless, boundless ground of the universe. Our job for the rest of our life is to open up into that immensity and to express it. Having more and more contact with this reality always brings compassion for others and changes our daily life. We live differently, work differently, relate to people differently. Zen is a lifelong study. It isn’t just sitting on a cushion for thirty or forty minutes a day. Our whole life becomes practice, twenty-four hours a day.”
Charlotte Joko Beck, Everyday Zen
