There was no waking from this nightmare, no comforting whisper in the dark that he was safe really, that it was all in his imagination; the last and greatest of his protectors had died, and he was more alone than he had ever been.

Women have an inner wisdom and an inner life that is different from men. Female power is an inner power. Men have an outer power and it’s probably wrong that a lot of the men we see depicted in film are all muscular and stronger than average. It would be nice to see them in a different way. But women have this wisdom that they seem to acquire in their 30s. Women in their 20s are still excited at the prospect of becoming a woman, but in your 30s, you’re already comfortable with it all. People change at different points in their life. In order to become a woman it’s not just about having sex. I think you have to get through a lot of heartbreaks and other life things before you get to that stage.

Do you even remember what it feels like to care about anything?

The paper was fresh and clean, and the ink crisply black. Legible or not, the date at the top of the page sprang out at me as though written in letters of fire: 20 April, 1743.

They can fatten me up. They can give me a full body polish, dress me up, and make me beautiful again. They can design dream weapons that come to life in my hands, but they will never again brainwash me into the necessity of using them. I no longer feel any allegiance to these monsters called human beings, despise being one myself.

Introverts, in contrast, may have strong social skills and enjoy parties and business meetings, but after a while wish they were home in their pajamas. They prefer to devote their social energies to close friends, colleagues, and family. They listen more than they talk, think before they speak, and often feel as if they express themselves better in writing than in conversation. They tend to dislike conflict. Many have a horror of small talk, but enjoy deep discussions.
