This week I’m sharing some quotes from the book A VERY LARGE EXPANSE OF SEA BY Tahereh Mafi. This is just a selection of my favourites from the book. I read this book many many years ago.
“If the decision you’ve made has brought you closer to humanity, then you’ve done the right thing.”
“I didn’t believe it was possible to hide a woman’s beauty. I thought women were gorgeous no matter what they wore, and I didn’t think they owed anyone an explanation for their sartorial choices. Different women felt comfortable in different outfits.
They were all beautiful.”
“I understood too well what it was like to feel like you were defined by one superficial thing- to feel like you would never excape the box people had put you in”
“Be honest. Remember, honesty is everything. Without it, we can never move foward. We can never have productive discussions. So be honest”
“I was so raw from repeated exposure to cruelty that now even the most minor abrasions left a mark.”
