This week I’m sharing  quotes from the book Circe by Madeline Miller, which I read a couple of weeks ago.


“It is a common saying that women are delicate creatures, flowers, eggs, anything that may be crushed in a moment’s carelessness. If I had ever believed it, I no longer did.”


“I would say, some people are like constellations that only touch the earth for a season.” 


“I will not be like a bird bred in a cage, I thought, too dull to fly even when the door stands open.” 


“Only that: we are here. This is what it means to swim in the tide, to walk the earth and feel it touch your feet. This is what it means to be alive.” 


“You can teach a viper to eat from your hands, but you cannot take away how much it likes to bite.” 


“The truth is, men make terrible pigs.”


“Bold action and bold manner are not the same.”


“I do not think anyone can say what is in someone else.” 


“Fear of failure was the worst thing for any spell.” 


“A golden cage is still a cage.”
