The Testaments by Margaret Atwood
“You take the first step, and to save yourself from the consequences, you take the next one. In times like ours, there are only two directions: up or plummet.”
Margaret Atwood
Lesley Handel shared a quote
The Testaments by Margaret Atwood
“Aunt Vidala said that best friends led to whispering and plotting and keeping secrets, and plotting and secrets led to disobedience to God, and disobedience led to rebellion, and girls who were rebellious became women who were rebellious, and a rebellious woman was even worse than a rebellious man because rebellious men became traitors, but rebellious women became adulteresses.”

Margaret Atwood
“You’ll learn about all of that when you’re old enough,” Aunt Vidala would say. All of that: the Handmaids were part of all of that. Something bad, then; something damaging, or something damaged, which might be the same thing.”
Margaret Atwood, The Testaments

Misty Griffin
“Some things you must always be unable to bear. Some things you must never stop refusing to bear. Injustice and outrage and dishonor and shame. No matter how young you are or how old you have got. Not for kudos and not for cash: your picture in the paper nor money in the back either. Just refuse to bear them. —William Faulkner, Intruder in the Dust”
Misty Griffin, Tears of the Silenced

Katie Henry
“Lucy’s mouth tightens. Is she thinking about the parts she has to leave behind to be a good Catholic? The parts that her own faith doesn’t want or value? Lucy with all her brilliant ideas, Lucy with all her steel and softness, Lucy who will never be a priest. I wonder if she’d really shut herself off from everything she could feel, and do, and be, for something that will probably never happen.”
Katie Henry, Heretics Anonymous

“Your number-one mission as a speaker is to take something that matters deeply to you and to rebuild it inside the minds of your listeners.”
