" If you read with your eyes shut you’re likely to find that the place where you’re going is far, far behind, so…that’s why I tell you to keep your eyes wide. Keep them wide open…at least on one side " -Dr. Seuss
A wild ride by Susan Choi
College " ..I’d like to say I was defying [Martha’s] gravity just as often as feeling its snare ..but my efforts were more likely spent clinging on with white knuckles to not be dislodged.”
La Belle Personne (2008) with Lea Seydoux
The down side of being a beautiful person. All the boys want to date Junie .. but when she encounters the love of her life she refuses to give in to her feelings and persists in denying herself happiness, which in her eyes are illusory ..too often based on the temporary allure of her appearance. She doesn’t want to risk it.
V for Vendetta (2005)
"I remember how the meaning of words began to change. How words like "collateral" and "rendition" became frightening, while things like Norsefire and the Articles of Allegiance became powerful. I remember how "different" became dangerous. I still don’t understand it, why they hate us so much."
