This is what love does. In the stories, love healed your wounds, fixed what was broken, allowed you to go on. But love wasn't a spell, some kind of benediction to be whispered, a balm or a cure-all. It was a single, fragile thread, which grew stronger through connection, through shared hardship and honoured trust.
Leigh Bardugo, Rule of Wolves

The past lay shattered and bleak, torn by trenches, thick with mines. But the future was rolling hills and untouched forest, an open sea, a fair-weather sky.

So she longs for the mornings, but she settles for the nights, and if it cannot be love, well, then, at least it is not lonely.

By existing you are planting softness in soil that has turned hard. There is no need to surrender your existence. You are doing just fine by even existing at all.

“I’m a business man,” he’d told her. “No more, no less.”

After so many years of tragedy and sadness, I have the chance to grab that happiness again. It’s not as complete—how could it be, with so many gone?—but I need to take it while I can.

It’s a good idea to keep your eye on the guys who think they know the one true path […] They might just mow you down if you’re in their way.

"I'm saving that for a rainy day."
"Mom, it's pouring."
"This is just a drizzle," she said. "Monsoons could be ahead!" She sipped her tea. "Things usually work out in the end."
"What if they don't?"
"That just means you haven't come to the end yet."

I’m wearying to escape into that glorious world, and to be always there: not seeing it dimly through tears, and yearning for it through the walls of an aching heart: but really with it, and in it.

👑 Henry V: The Legendary King & Conqueror in a Nutshell 👑

"The accession of Henry V—king by right, rather than conquest—reunited England underan undisputed leader. Henry was a vigorous, charismatic, confident king: an accomplishedgeneral and an intelligent politician. His reign was notable for success in almostevery area of government and warfare. Early on he made significant gestures of reconciliation, offering forgiveness to rebels of his father’s reign, and exhuming Richard II fromhis burial place in Kings Langley, Hertfordshire, and transferring his remains tothe tomb Richard had commissioned, alongside his first wife, Anne of Bohemia, in WestminsterAbbey. The central mission of his reign was to harness his close relations with hisleading nobles to lead a war against France. In this he had been wildly successful: in less than two years of fighting Henry had pushed English power farther into the Continent than at any time since the rule of Richard the Lionheart more than two centuriesbefore.
Catherine's marriage to this energetic young warrior-king represented the culminationof this audacious foreign policy."

This sky I look to with birds flying in opposite directions, with a mountain gaze cast downward, with land chopped up in tiny sections. There are too many ways to feel alone and not enough places to fall in love. Don't you understand? I dreamed of love and it gave me too many sleepless nights. And now sometimes I reach so far into the sky I wake up and I am not even in my bed.

It’s strange to grieve for your former self, and still I think it’s something that any girl understands. I’ve shed so many skins, I hardly know what I am now – muscle, maybe, or just memory. Perhaps just the will to keep going.
