‘ most people have done bad stuff at some point in their lives , stuff they wish to take back, stuff they regret. we all make mistakes. we all have good and bad in us. just because someone does one terrible thing, should that overshadow all the good things they‘ve done? or are there some things so bad that no good act can redeem them? ‘ 5/5 ; perfect book for gloomy autumn weather

‘ as long as you keep secrets and suppress information, you are fundamentally at war with yourself. hiding your core feelings takes an enormous amount of energy, it saps your motivation to pursue worthwhile goals, and it leaves you feeling bored and shut down.‘ 5/5

‘ why is it that people think this is okay? why do people see no harm in having children? they do it with smiles on their faces, as if it‘s not an act of violence. you force this other being into the world, this being than never asked to be born. you do this absurd thing because that‘s what you want for yourself, and that doesn‘t make any sense ‘. 5/5
