The Coworker | Freida McFadden

“That‘s what it takes to catch your prey. Patience. We can all learn a lot from the soft-shelled turtle.”
#July2024

quote
Smlambert725

“A world where people loved and valued books and learning so much that they were willing to die for them. Can you imagine what such a civilization was like?”
#July2024

quote
Smlambert725

“I spent my whole life being nervous up until I realized that life happens in between the beats of our own heart, and if it thumps too fast, there is no space for us to live.”
#July2024

quote
Smlambert725

“History is a merciless judge. It lays bare our tragic blunders and foolish missteps and exposes our most intimate secrets, wielding the power of hindsight like an arrogant detective who seems to know the end of the mystery from the outset.”

The Lost Bookshop | Evie Woods

“Lost is not a hopeless place to be. It is a place of patience, of waiting. Lost does not mean gone for ever. Lost is a bridge between worlds, where the pain of our past can be transformed into power. You have always held the key to this special place, but now you are ready to unlock the door.”
#June2024

quote
Smlambert725
The Atlas Complex | Olivie Blake

“This is the problem with knowledge: it‘s inexhaustible craving. The madness inherent in knowing there is only more to know. It‘s a problem of morality, of seeing the invariable end from the immovable beginning, of determining that the more you try to fix it, the more beginnings there are to discover, the more ways to reach the same unavoidable end.”
#June2024

quote
Smlambert725

“Light is only possible through dialogue between cultures, not through rejection of one or the other.”

The Atlas Paradox | Olivie Blake

“People always craved power - that was a constant of humanity, a truer rule than any law of physics. If they weren‘t given power, they took it. And however lofty and moral their foundational creed, people historically did not choose to give it away.”

The Flame of Prometheus | Taryn L Davidson

“Naturally, as humans, we are drawn to each other—our lives become centered around family, friends, significant others, and even acquaintances. And, I believed, between every human being, there was an invisible string, linking people together.”
#March2024

quote
Smlambert725
Hench | Natalie Zina Walschots

“To seek vengeance and power instead of cowering when the world punishes you. That‘s what they think evil is, do they not?”
