There are so many quotes from this book that I wanted to do another list of some more!
“Here was a thing Beatriz wanted: to devote time to understanding how a butterfly was similar to a galaxy. Here was a thing she feared: being asked to do anything else.”
“Anyone who has held an argument with a silent participant will realise that silence sometimes can be more frustrating than a defense.”
“Very few people are ever healed by being told a truth instead of feeling the truth for themselves.”
“It was not a real animal after all; it was only fear and darkness under her fingers, which seem solid only until you have them in your grasp.”
“The things that made her happiest didn’t have concrete forms, which made them extremely hardy. Ideas couldn’t die.”
