“You cannot know a wild thing.”
― Gin Phillips, Fierce Kingdom

 “I hand over a lot of things when I’m home. Mom tells me she doesn’t like my shirt I want to buy, and I hand it over. Not the shirt itself, but my wish for that shirt. I want to watch one television show and she wants to watch another one -I hand that over too. It’s easier that way. I even hand over my toenails when she asks. But I think sometimes you need to put a thing in a box -even if the box is inside your head -and store it away for yourself.”
― Gin Phillips, The Hidden Summer

“With a lover you might have a perfect comfort with each other’s body, a sense that his body belongs to you and yours to him, and you might have total unselfconscious freedom to put a hand on his thigh, to put your mouth on his in the way you know he likes best, for him to curl around you in bed, pelvis to pelvis—but the two of you are still, ultimately, two different bodies, and the pleasure comes from the difference.”
― Gin Phillips, Fierce Kingdom

 “She doesn’t picture them as Arabic—she has been wondering, of course. But they do not sound like that kind of terrorist. They sound like young, obnoxious white men—aren’t they always young white men?—and she is not sure whether this makes them more or less dangerous than fanatics on a jihad.”
― Gin Phillips, Fierce Kingdom

One Final Bonus – Gin Phillips Quote 

“She cannot think of such things and still function, and she has needed to function, and she has never wanted to be one of those women who won’t let their children eat raw cookie dough or wander a block down the street without a chaperone, and you have to manage the terror or you can never watch your child walk out the front door. And here they are where death is shoving its bloody snout in their faces, and she has not considered it, not really, because she has some vague idea of what she will unleash if she does, the great gaping chasm that will open up. That is what you do when you have a child, isn’t it, open yourself up to unimaginable pain and then try to pretend away the possibilities.”
― Gin Phillips, Fierce Kingdom
