마음근력의 핵심은 모든 두려움에서 완전히 벗어나는 것이다.

몸과 마음의 모든 병은 두려움에서 비롯된다.

회복탄력성은 반드시 성공하겠다는 불굴의 의지나
집착에서 오는 것이 아니라
실패를 두려워하지 않는 마음에서 온다.

천천히 호흡하면서
고개 한번 돌려
나의 내면을 조용히 들여다보면
거기에 텅 빈 평온함과 온전한 자유가 있다.

She grabbed her knees and heaved up every piece of dry biscuit she’d eaten. It took some moments to catch her breath. When she did, she saw Anna standing outside watching her. Without a word, Anna walked back to the kitchen. - P51

An arrow shot from the leafy heaven above us. It zipped through the air and landed at Suleman’s feet. - P55

Like a breeze swept through the clearing, leaves shook and danced on the trees, swishing and fluttering at once. Then as if by magic, the trees came alive. Branches turned into legs, then arms, and leaves into faces. They came down from the trees and landed on the ground before us. - P55

Although she was twelve and almost grown, at least in her mind, Sanzi still wasn’t sure how much of it was true, but she did believe that dangers lay out there. - P1

The dogs ate just about the same food rations they gave us—lucky dogs. - P2

WHEN MINGO DIED LAST SUMMER, THEY SENT over a coffin to our quarters. - P5

I’d swear that water felt like pudding—heavy, wet, and smooth. - P5

Water filled my ears and slapped my face. - P5

Even at seven, Ada holds tight to her dreams. I’m the opposite. If it didn’t work the first time, there was no way I’d be trying it again. - P6

DOGS BARKING IN THE FOREST IS EXTRA SCARY. - P2

In the moonlight I spotted dog ears that pointed straight up. Funny thing was, I knew this dog. Even in the dark, I could see its face, big and round like one of Mama’s iron pots in the Big House kitchen. Stokes had me feed that big head when he was away watching the fields. I had to do it with my morning work, after collecting milk and eggs, but before watering and brushing down the horses. - P2

We were strangers. I was the slave and he was the dog sent to catch me. - P2

We heard the water before we saw it. It was night, but this river was awake. We stood on the bank with barking behind us and roaring water in front. - P3

The water spilled downhill and grumbled like a belly waiting for food, its tongue licking this way and that as it turned and twisted toward the foggy swamp. - P3

That’s how being underwater felt, like lying in a coffin. - P5

Invisibility was how I survived. I’d learned that all attention, even the good kind, could be dangerous. - P7

I was nowhere, I was nothing. When I did it right, I felt safer. But the swamp didn’t abide by my rules. This swamp saw me. - P7

AS OVERSEER OF SOUTHERLAND PLANTATION, Stokes prided himself on three things: driving enslaved souls in the fields until they could hardly stand from exhaustion, his instincts for knowing when one would run off, and training dogs to hunt and return those runaways to Southerland. - P11

Two Shoes was the talk of the quarters. He was different. - P14

We were sold, loaned, taken, and ran away, but gifting was the strangest. Gifts sound nice, but slave moving was always ugly. It didn’t seem right to call it gifting. - P17

She spun around with her ear cocked to the foggy sky. - P17

HE WAS THE MOST DIFFERENT PERSON I’D EVER seen. His skin was a sweet, deep, glowing hickory brown, with hair locked into long ropes that hung over his wide shoulders and down his back. His shirt was white, or it had been at some point, with a bit of ruffle cloth on the collar, and torn to tatters along the bottom. Across his chest was a fur strap that mounted to his back a bow and a quiver filled with snake-killing arrows. Around his waist were strange ropes I’d never seen before, like braided vines. - P23

"What’s the opposite of invisible? Red? Yeah, I’m like shining red, and she hits me." She let out a sad laugh. - P32

The water was still and bright green as a new spring leaf. "You think we can drink it?" Ada asked. "Green water is better than no water," I said, sounding more sure than I felt. - P34

Free. That sounded strange. There was no North, no pretty houses, no Mama. I didn’t even know there could be freedom without Mama. My heart sank. - P39

I whispered the steps for Mama in my head. If I said them, she’d know them. Forest, river, vines and bush, watch for the sinkhole, more vines and bush, green water, tree boat, lily pads, secret water door, tree hideout. I said it to myself once, then a second time, as I fell asleep. - P42

She simply chose not to speak. Perhaps she was afraid that she would not be heard. - P46

[eBook] 은랑전

평점 :
장바구니담기


켄 리우. 전작 소설집 <유리동물원>의 감흥이 깊다. 이번 두 번째 소설집 또한 기대를 완충해 준다. 역사와 상상을 과학으로 넘나드는 작가의 통찰이 놀랍다.

[eBook] 이처럼 사소한 것들
클레어 키건 지음, 홍한별 옮김 / 다산책방 / 2024년 5월
평점 :
장바구니담기


클레어 키건은 작지만 큰 울림을 준다. 간결하면서도 묘사적이고 상징적이다. 그리고 그 여운은 독자의 몫으로 남겨 둔다.
