It’s Sunday that only means one thing, time to share some quotes!!!
Today’s quotes are from the book The Power by Naomi Alderman
“This is the trouble with history. You can’t see what’s not there. You can look at an empty space and see that something’s missing, but there’s no way to know what it was.”
“Gender is a shell game. What is a man? Whatever a woman isn’t. What is a woman? Whatever a man is not. Tap on it and it’s hollow. Look under the shells: it’s not there.”
“The truth has always been a more complex commodity than the market can easily package and sell.”
“We’re only pretending everything is normal because we don’t know what else to do.”
“However complicated you think it is, everything is always more complicated than that.”
“The way we think about our past informs what we think is possible today.”
“The highest among us aren’t always the wisest,”
“The only wave that changes anything is a tsunami. You have to tear down the houses and destroy the land if you want to be sure no one will forget you.”
“It is hard now, very hard, but the difficulty is familiar.”
