Sylvia Plath
“God, but life is loneliness, despite all the opiates, despite the shrill tinsel gaiety of "parties" with no purpose, despite the false grinning faces we all wear. And when at last you find someone to whom you feel you can pour out your soul, you stop in shock at the words you utter - they are so rusty, so ugly, so meaningless and feeble from being kept in the small cramped dark inside you so long. Yes, there is joy, fulfillment and companionship - but the loneliness of the soul in its appalling self-consciousness is horrible and overpowering.”
Sylvia Plath, The Unabridged Journals of Sylvia Plath

Roxane Gay
“I believe feminism is grounded in supporting the choices of women even if we wouldn’t make certain choices for ourselves.”
Roxane Gay, Bad Feminist: Essays

Emily St. John Mandel
“Hell is the absence of the people you long for.”
Emily St. John Mandel, Station Eleven

Jandy Nelson
“We were all heading for each other on a collision course, no matter what. Maybe some people are just meant to be in the same story.”
Jandy Nelson, I'll Give You the Sun

Seamus Heaney
“If you have the words, there's always a chance that you'll find the way.”
Seamus Heaney, Stepping Stones: Interviews with Seamus Heaney
