“She survived whatever happened;
she forgave; she became.”
W.H. Auden, “The Model” (via wordsnquotes)

"Samuel said, ‘One day we’ll sit and you’ll lay it out on the table neat like a solitaire deck, but now — why, you can’t find all the cards.’" -East of Eden

“I wonder where you got that idea from? I mean, the idea that it’s feeble to change your mind once it’s made up. That’s a wrong idea, you know. Make up your mind about things, by all means – but if something happens to show that you are wrong, then it is feeble not to change your mind, Elizabeth. Only the strongest people have the pluck to change their minds, and say so, if they see they have been wrong in their ideas.”
― Enid Blyton, The Naughtiest Girl in the School
