Some lovely words and thoughts here.
“Touch comes before sight, before speech. It is the first language and the last, and it always tells the truth.” (The Blind Assassin,2000)
“Within every dystopia there’s a little utopia.” (Interview, New York Magazine, 2013)
“As soon as you have a language that has a past tense and a future tense you’re going to say, ‘Where did we come from, what happens next?’ The ability to remember the past helps us plan the future.” (Interview, Telegraph, 2013)
Happy 75th Birthday Margaret Atwood and thanks for all the words after words after words!
