Kurt Vonnegut Jr.
“In the water I am beautiful.”
Kurt Vonnegut Jr.

Kurt Vonnegut Jr.
“Take it moment by moment, and you will find that we are all, as I’ve said before, bugs in amber.”
Kurt Vonnegut

Arundhati Roy
“To love. To be loved. To never forget your own insignificance. To never get used to the unspeakable violence and the vulgar disparity of life around you. To seek joy in the saddest places. To pursue beauty to its lair. To never simplify what is complicated or complicate what is simple. To respect strength, never power. Above all, to watch. To try and understand. To never look away. And never, never to forget.”
Arundhati Roy, The Cost of Living

Janet Fitch
“
Loneliness is the human condition. Cultivate it. The way it tunnels into you allows your soul room to grow. Never expect to outgrow loneliness. Never hope to find people who will understand you, someone to fill that space. An intelligent, sensitive person is the exception, the very great exception. If you expect to find people who will understand you, you will grow murderous with disappointment. The best you'll ever do is to understand yourself, know what it is that you want, and not let the cattle stand in your way.”
Janet Fitch, White Oleander

Janet Fitch
“You've got to let go of who you were, to become who you will be.”
Janet Fitch
