Book Quote #6: “I wonder if that’s how darkness wins”


“I wonder if that’s how darkness wins, by convincing us to trap it inside ourselves, instead of emptying it out. I don’t want it to win.”

— My Heart and Other Black Holes, Jasmine Warga

Somedays I feel that it helps to talk positively, and that the act of saying happy words will make us happier, like how holding a pencil in our mouth will make us smile for real. Other times I feel the need to speak sad words and have a shoulder to cry on. Perhaps unspoken words hurt the most.

My Heart and Other Black Holes is an amazing book about depression and suicide. If you have an interest in mental health, this is a must read.

Do you have a quote that inspires you this week?

  1. This is an easy one for me, because it’s on the wall in my living room: “There is some good in this world, and it’s worth fighting for.” J.R.R. Tolkien, The Two Towers
