Book cover for The Handmaid's Tale
But a chair, sunlight, flowers: these are not to be dismissed. I am alive, I live, I breathe, I put my hand out, unfolded, into the sunlight. Where I am is not a prison but a privilege,
Ali Wong
“The answers to making it, to me, are a lot more universal than anyone's race or gender, and center on having a tolerance for delayed gratification, a passion for the craft, and a willingness to fail.”
Ali Wong, Dear Girls: Intimate Tales, Untold Secrets, & Advice for Living Your Best Life

Jon Krakauer
“So many people live within unhappy circumstances and yet will not take the initiative to change their situation because they are conditioned to a life of security, conformity, and conservatism, all of which may appear to give one peace of mind, but in reality nothing is more dangerous to the adventurous spirit within a man than a secure future. The very basic core of a man’s living spirit is his passion for adventure. The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun.”
Jon Krakauer, Into the Wild

Tayari Jones
“Everything I do is a love letter addressed to you.”
Tayari Jones, An American Marriage

Jon Krakauer
“It's not always necessary to be strong, but to feel strong.”
Jon Krakauer, Into the Wild

Christy Lefteri
“I wish I could escape my mind, that I could be free of this world and everything I have seen in the last few years. And the children who have survived - what will become of them? How will they be able to live in this world?”
Christy Lefteri, The Beekeeper of Aleppo
