 “Home is the place you return to when you have finally lost your soul. Home is the place where life is born, not the place of your birth, but the place where you seek rebirth. When you no longer have to remember which tale of your own past is true and which is an invention, when you know that you are an invention, then is the time to seek out your home. Perhaps only when you have come to understand that can you finally reach home.”
― Karen Maitland, Company of Liars

“The day that I left my home, I had prayed that my children would forget me. I wanted to spare them the pain of remembering.

If we are not remembered, we are more than dead, for it is as if we had never lived.”
― Karen Maitland, Company of Liars

One Final Bonus – Karen Maitland Quote 

“Are you finally admitting that you can sell a man hope? Have I at last succeeded in teaching you that?’
He laughed and flicked his whip again, harder. He was in a better mood than I had seen for months.
No, Camelot, not hope. Hope is for the weak; have I not succeeded in teaching you that? To hope is to put your faith in others and in things outside yourself; that way lies betrayal and disappointment. They didn’t want hope, Camelot; they wanted certainty. What a man needs is the certainty that he is right, no selfdoubt, no fleeting thought that he might be wrong or misled. Absolute certainty that he is right, that’s what gives a man the confidence and power to do whatever he wants and to take whatever he wants from this world and the next.”

― Karen Maitland, Company of Liars
