Generations dying in the ovens of hatred. Future generations scarred by the cold fires of radiation and renewed hatred."

Now the world ceased to be the world, and I had ceased to be me."
Author: Haruki Murakami

For crimes that took place in the monstrous dealings between nations, for crimes that took place in those intimate spaces between two people without a witness..."
Author: Kiran Desai

Author: Libba Bray

Of the way he said "the sky and the sand and the sea and Corr" to me. And I feel a bite of unfairness, because in everything but name, it seems to me that Sean Kendrick already owns Corr."
Author: Maggie Stiefvater

Author: Naomi Wolf
