"It’s funny, but I like being “pink and helpless” – when I know I seem that way, I feel terribly competent – and superior. I keep thinking, “Now those men think I’m purely decorative, and they’re just fools for not knowing better” – and I love being rather unfathomable."

"People are like cities: We all have alleys and gardens and secret rooftops and places where daisies sprout between the sidewalk cracks, but most of the time all we let each other see is is a postcard glimpse of a skyline or a polished square. Love lets you find those hidden places in another person, even the ones they didn’t know were there, even the ones they wouldn’t have thought to call beautiful themselves."
