I am currently reading this book and there are just so many great and beautiful quotes that I felt like I needed to share some of my favorites so far!

“Something that small shouldn’t be so powerful, but I swear there’s this pull between us, and every time I touch her, every time I even look at her, it gets stronger. Like she’s an ocean tide, and I’m caught up in her current. And there’s no point in fighting my way to the surface because I don’t know which way is up or down. I don’t know anything except that I want her.”
― Cora Carmack, Inspire

“There’s this funny thing about empathy. It’s not actually in limited supply. Just because other people have it worse doesn’t mean you don’t deserve to be understood. To feel comfort.”
― Cora Carmack, Inspire

“I love her, and I love Mom, and I would do just about anything for them. But when you think stuff like that … you think of grand, heroic gestures. Pushing someone out of the way of a moving vehicle. Standing between them and danger. Sacrificing something important. But it’s not like that. Not at all. It’s not one big moment, it’s a thousand. It’s every day. And you don’t sacrifice just one important thing, you sacrifice a little more and a little more until you start to feel hollowed out. It’s not the sacrifice that hurts so much as the thought that it will never end. That you’re stuck in your fate, and nothing and no one can change it. You’ll just keep giving and giving until you don’t even know who you are.”
― Cora Carmack, Inspire
