""When a woman travels from A to B, she will encounter mad dogs along the route who will bark at her. They will always shout discouragement to a woman on her path to success. The thing to do is ignore them. Never stop to reason with a mad dog."" Mar 26, 2021 03:47PM

“Between life and death there is a library,’ she said. ‘And within that library, the shelves go on for ever. Every book provides a chance to try another life you could have lived. To see how things would be if you had made other choices . . . Would you have done anything different, if you had the chance to undo your regrets?”
Matt Haig, The Midnight Library

“Just because it is in Malibu's nature to burn, so was it in one particular person's nature to set fire and walk away.”
Taylor Jenkins Reid, Malibu Rising

Carol Edgarian
“I always thought of my city as a woman. But the house, it turned out, was a woman too. When the quake hit, she groaned. Her timbers strained to hold on to their pins, the pins snapping. And the rocks beneath the house? They had voices too. And if I ever wondered how long it would take for the world to end, I know: forty-five seconds.”
Carol Edgarian, Vera: A Novel

“Dissecting the rishta sites quickly becomes me and Fiz's favorite pastime. 'Look at this one, Fiz, look at this one. "i am looking for simple, obedient girl." Vom!' 'Why doesn't he just advertise for a chief chapati maker and be done with it.' 'I know, right! This guy says "only virgin!", "no party girls!" He also loves exclamation marks.' 'Translation: I can't be with a woman who has met other men because then she'll know how rubbish I am.”
Mariam Khan, It's Not About the Burqa

Kristin Hannah
“They were standing at the top of a mountain, on a wide patch of flat land. Far below lay a vast swath of farmland, fields of green. Great rectangles of brown, newly tilled earth. “California,” Ant said. Elsa had never seen land so beautiful. So fertile. So green. California. The Golden State.”
Kristin Hannah, The Four Winds
