Tahereh Mafi Quote: “We’re too different now. We want different things. And this?” I say nodding at our hands. “All this managed to prove is that you are extremely good at turning me off.”
Tahereh Mafi Quote: “I’m not sure. But there’s something about the darkness, the stillness of this hour, I think, that creates a language of its own. There’s a strange kind of freedom in the dark; a terrifying vulnerability we allow ourselves at exactly the wrong moment, tricked by the darkness into thinking it will keep our secrets. We forget that the blackness is not a blanket; we forget that the sun will soon rise. But in the moment, at least, we feel brave enough to say things we’d never say in the light.”
Tahereh Mafi Quote: “There are secrets everywhere. Answers nowhere.”
Tahereh Mafi Quote: “I want to hurt people all the time,” he says. “Sometimes I can’t sleep at night because I’m thinking about all the people I’d like to murder.”

Tahereh Mafi Quote: “He leans forward and I freeze. I thaw. I melt. “Juliette,” I whisper. “My name is Juliette.” His lips soften into a smile that cracks apart my spine. He repeats my name like the word amuses him. Entertains him. Delights him. In 17 years no one has said my name like that.”
Tahereh Mafi Quote: “I am suspended in the moment. Flickering images faded with age, frozen thoughts hovering precariously in dead space, a whirlwind of memories that slice through my soul.”
Tahereh Mafi Quote: “You’re a coward,” he whispers. “You want to be with me and it terrifies you. And you’re ashamed,” he says. “Ashamed you could ever want someone like me. Aren’t you?”
Tahereh Mafi Quote: “You have to get it together, girl, or you’re not going to get through this alive. You have no idea what’s going on behind the scenes or what the other commanders have in store for you. Lena won’t be the last of us to arrive here, you know. And no one is coming here to play nice.” “Good. Let them come.”

Tahereh Mafi Quote: “This was my miserable choice. I brought it upon myself.”

Tahereh Mafi Quote: “I see women and children starving to death, homes destroyed and buried in rubble, the countryside a burnt landscape, its only fruit the rotting flesh of casualties.

Tahereh Mafi Quote: “We’ve been shattered and reconstructed, told to make an effort every single day to pretend we still function the way we’re supposed to. But it’s a lie, it’s all a lie; every person, place, thing and idea is a lie. I do not function properly. I am nothing more than the consequence of catastrophe.”
Tahereh Mafi Quote: “Try again,” he says slowly. “Stay calm. Have faith in yourself. If you don’t believe you can do it,” he says, “you won’t.”
Tahereh Mafi Quote: “My dreams are bloody and bleeding and blood is bleeding all over my mind and I can’t sleep anymore.”
Tahereh Mafi Quote: “Every single time you claim to understand even a fraction of what I’m feeling, I want to disembowel you. I want to sever your carotid artery. I want to rip out your vertebrae, one by one. You have no idea what it is to love her,” he says angrily. “You couldn’t even begin to imagine. So stop trying to understand.”
Tahereh Mafi Quote: “Swords may cut and kill, but words will stab and stay, burying themselves in our bones to become corpses we carry into the future.”
Tahereh Mafi Quote: “Every day we feel further apart. And sometimes I think the harder I try to hold on, the more she tries to break away.”

Everyone assumed I was fresh off the boat from a foreign land.”
