"It astounds me how great our capacity is for self-inflicted verbal abuse in the realms of our minds. When I step back and consider some of the things that I tell myself on any given day, I’m disgusted because they are mostly things that I would never be cruel enough to say to someone else. But for some reason, it’s easy and almost automatic to talk to myself like this."

"What a fool she was ever to have imagined that there might be some place in the world where she could sink to the earth with the knowledge that there were people round her who understood, who perhaps even admired and loved her!"

"Let’s teach that loving isn’t always loving. Like when you loved the hamster so much that it died. Some adults do that too. Too much, the wrong way. These are ‘Stay away’ zones on your body. These are ‘Stay away’ people. You don’t have to obey all adults. Not even parents. Disagree respectfully. Run, if you need. Shout, if you need. Adults can be bad too."

- Deborah Ainslie, All Flowers Are Not Yellow


"Love and trust, in the space between what’s said and what’s heard in our life, can make all the difference in the world."

- Mr. Rogers


"Grab the reins and fucking do it."

"Being tolerant does not mean that I share another person’s belief. But it does mean that I acknowledge another person’s right to believe, and obey, his own conscience."
