“Love is curiosity sometimes. Concentrated wondering about the other one.”
― Kij Johnson, The Fox Woman

 “I feel strangely free at such times. To behave properly is to be always courteous, always clever, and subtle and elegant. But now, when I am so alone, I do not have to be any of these things.

For this moment, I am wholly myself, unshaped by the needs of others, by their dreams or expectations or sensibilities.

But I am also lonely. With no one to shape me, who stands here, watching the moon, or the stars, or the clouds?”
― Kij Johnson, The Fox Woman

“This is the gift of humanity: that it is claimed by the self. None of us…are human unless and until we claim it for ourselves. But nothing can stop that claiming – not the eight million gods nor the spirits nor ghosts. Nothing but ourselves, anyway.
And our lives become the poems we were born to tell.”
― Kij Johnson, The Fox Woman

 “Waiting required a future to wait for: a falsehood. I know now that there is only now. I remember things that happened months (or what is years?) ago: old -worn-out nows. The future happens, but it is always shaped from a series of nows.”
― Kij Johnson, The Fox Woman

 “We ascribe meanings because it is our nature to do so..We can no more see a thing without searching for a meaning than we can see a snag in a robe without pulling on the loose thread.”

“There would be sadness and nightmares. And there would be lovemaking and the holding close of children and friends and dogs — affirmations of life in the cold wet night.”
― Kij Johnson, At the Mouth of the River of Bees

One Final Bonus – Kij Johnson Quote 

“Cats have a sort of game they play when they meet. A player alternates between watching the strange cat and ignoring her, grooming or examining everything around herself – a dead leaf, a cloud – with complete absorption. It is almost accidental how the two cats approach, a sidelong step and then the sitting again. This often ends in a flurry of spitting and slashing claws, too fast to see clearly, and then one or the other (or both) of the cats leap out of range. The game can have one exchange or many – and is not so different from the first meetings of women.”
― Kij Johnson, Fudoki
