My Favorite Quotes

I’m one of those nerdy people who love quotes. Here are some of my favorites:

  • Fairy tales are more than true; not because they tell us that dragons exist, but because they tell us dragons can be beaten. – G.K. Chesterton

  • The problem with stereotypes is not that they are untrue, but that they are incomplete; they make one story become the whole story. – Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
  • Do not bring people in your life who weigh you down, and trust your instincts. Good relationships feel good. They feel right. They don’t hurt. They’re not painful.
