jeanette speaks

Let's make a post full of Jeanette Winterson quotes, shall we? We shall.

"I want someone who is fierce and will love me until death and knows that love is as strong as death, and be on my side forever and ever. I want someone who will destroy and be destroyed by me." -from Oranges are Not the Only Fruit

"'Do you fall in love often?'

Yes often. With a view, with a book, with a dog, a cat, with numbers, with friends, with complete strangers, with nothing at all." -from Gut Symmetries

"There are many forms of love and affection, some people can spend their whole lives together without knowing each other's names. Naming is a difficult and time-consuming process; it concerns essences, and it means power. But on the wild nights who can call you home? Only the one who knows your name." -from Oranges are Not the Only Fruit

"In the space between chaos and shape there was another chance." -from The World and Other Places: Stories

"To be ill adjusted to a deranged world is not a breakdown."
