You've heard tales of beauty and the beast. How a fair maid falls in love with a monster and sees the beauty of his soul beneath the hideous visage. But you've never heard the tale of the handsome man falling for the monstrous woman and finding joy in her love, because it doesn't happen, not even in a story-teller's tale.More Karen Maitland quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Home is the place you return to when you have finally lost your soul. Home is the place where life is born, not the place of your birth, but the place where you seek rebirth. When you no longer have to remember which tale of your own past is true and which is an invention, when you know that you are an invention, then is the time to seek out your home. Perhaps only when you have come to understand that can you finally reach home.More Karen Maitland quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
But then, the flames of a fire are not made less painful by the knowledge that others are burning with you.More Karen Maitland quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
