Her nostrils flared. Becoming a werewolf had nearly destroyed her, but hadn’t. Thus she’d discovered the Conradian truth: The first horror is there’s horror. The second is you accommodate it.

❝ Isn’t it time to acknowledge the ugly side? I’ve grown quite weary of the spunky heroines, brave rape victims, soul-searching fashionistas that stock so many books. I particularly mourn the lack of female villains — good, potent female villains. Not ill-tempered women who scheme about landing good men and better shoes (as if we had nothing more interesting to war over), not chilly WASP mothers (emotionally distant isn’t necessarily evil), not soapy vixens (merely bitchy doesn’t qualify either). I’m talking violent, wicked women. Scary women. Don’t tell me you don’t know some. The point is, women have spent so many years girl-powering ourselves — to the point of almost parodic encouragement — we’ve left no room to acknowledge our dark side. Dark sides are important. They should be nurtured like nasty black orchids. ❞

❝ There’s no need to build a labyrinth when the entire universe is one. ❞

The Secret Life Of The Forest by Jeannine Hall Gailey

❝ You never named me.
Victor, you never gave me
what little humanity
every person is owed.

I understand that there are
abominations and monstrosities
which should be forgotten,
erased from history,
but even hurricanes have names. ❞

The Lunar Chronicles - Cyborgs

"The cyborg draft had been started by some royal research team a year ago. […] It was made out to be some sort of honor, giving your life for the good of humanity, but it was really just a reminder that cyborgs were not like everyone else.  Many of them had been given a second chance at life by the generous hand of scientists and therefore owed their very existence to those who had created them.”
-Marissa Meyer, Cinder
