More of Cordelia's books…
Margaret Atwood
“Nolite te bastardes carborundorum.”
Margaret Atwood, The Handmaid's Tale

Margaret Atwood
“Love blurs your vision; but after it recedes, you can see more clearly than ever. It's like the tide going out, revealing whatever's been thrown away and sunk: broken bottles, old gloves, rusting pop cans, nibbled fishbodies, bones. This is the kind of thing you see if you sit in the darkness with open eyes, not knowing the future.”
Margaret Atwood, Cat's Eye

Jane Austen
“I have been used to consider poetry as "the food of love" said Darcy.

"Of a fine, stout, healthy love it may. Everything nourishes what is
strong already. But if it be only a slight, thin sort of inclination, I
am convinced that one good sonnet will starve it entirely away.”
Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice

Seth Lloyd
“Meaning is like pornography, you know it when you see it.”
Seth Lloyd, Programming the Universe: A Quantum Computer Scientist Takes on the Cosmos

Agatha Christie
“I like living. I have sometimes been wildly, despairingly, acutely miserable, racked with sorrow; but through it all I still know quite certainly that just to be alive is a grand thing.”
Agatha Christi
