“Become both the window and the mirror for those who read your work.”

“A queen offers her hand to be kissed, & can form it into a fist while smiling the whole damn time.”

“…you can’t control how people look at you, but you can control how far back you pull your shoulders and how high you lift your chin.”

“I think of all the things we could be if we were not told our bodies were not made for them.”

“But even at the risk of burning, the moth always seeks the light.”
