“Maybe there were people who lived those lives. Maybe this girl was one of them. But what about the rest of us? What about the nobodies and the nothings, the invisible girls? We learn to hold our heads as if we wear crowns. We learn to wring magic from the ordinary. That was how you survived when you weren’t chosen, when there was no royal blood in your veins. When the world owed you nothing, you demanded something of it anyway.”
Why this quote?
This quote really resonated with me when I read this book. In fact, I cried. I read a lot of fantasy books and sometimes it just sucks being a plain human. It’s quotes like these that remind me why humans are so special in the first place. We aren’t born with any special powers or abilities. What we have is what we work for and earn.
