My name is Cassie.
I’m a 21 year old writing student from Australia.
Here is my context: I’m a little lost, but I’m just finding my feet.
Words are precious to me.
So here are some that gave me goosebumps:
“Nolite te bastardes carborundorum.” – The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood
“With your little claws Lolita.” – Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov
“I am still The black swan of trespass on alien waters. – Ern Malley
“In vain I have struggled. It will not do. My feelings will not be repressed. You must allow me to tell you how ardently I admire and love you.” – Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
“A strange melancholy pervades me to which I hesitate to give the grave and beautiful name of sadness.” Bonjour Tristesse by Francoise Sagan
