I wish you a brilliant week ahead!


“Fortitude. … It means fixity of purpose. It means endurance. It means having the strength to live with what constrains you.”
― Hilary Mantel, Wolf Hall

“You can have a silence full of words. A lute retains, in its bowl, the notes it has played. The viol, in its strings, holds a concord. A shriveled petal can hold its scent, a prayer can rattle with curses; an empty house, when the owners have gone out, can still be loud with ghosts.”
― Hilary Mantel, Wolf Hall

“[T]he heart is like any other organ, you can weigh it on a scale.”
― Hilary Mantel, Wolf Hall

“A man’s power is in the half-light, in the half-seen movements of his hand and the unguessed-at expression of his face. It is the absence of facts tat frightens people: the gap you open, into which they pour their fears, fantasies, desires.”
― Hilary Mantel, Wolf Hall

“You learn nothing about men by snubbing them and crushing their pride. You must ask them what it is they can do in this world, that they alone can do.”
― Hilary Mantel, Wolf Hall

“But who would hold up his head, if people judged us by what we were like at twenty?”
― Hilary Mantel, Wolf Hall

“Our virtues make us; but virtues are not enough, we must deploy our vices at times.”
― Hilary Mantel, Wolf Hall
