❝It is one of the peculiar truths of life that people often say things that they know full well are ridiculous. If someone asks you how you are, for example, you might automatically say ‘Fine, thank you,’ when in fact you have just failed an examination or been trampled by an ox.❞

❝Girls are trained to say, ‘I wrote this, but it’s probably really stupid.’ Well, no, you wouldn’t write a novel if you thought it was really stupid. Men are much more comfortable going, ‘I wrote this book because I have a unique perspective that the world needs to hear.’ Girls are taught from the age of seven that if you get a compliment, you don’t go, ‘Thank you’, you go, ‘No, you’re insane.’❞

❝The loneliest people are the kindest.
The saddest people smile the brightest.
The most damaged people are the wisest. All because they don’t want to see anyone else suffer the way they do.❞
