"Since if you are feared to get hurt, then you do not dare to try anything, you are not enjoying your rights of being young at all. What we should be really fear of are not failures but the heart that is no longer brave enough to take risks and embrace challenges. If there are people who are crying secretly because they are facing failures, I would like to say the following words to them: It is okay that we fail now since we are still so young."

Kwon Jiyong in Shout Out To The World

"Se muito além deste sonho que vovó está dormindo não existe nada mais - como muita gente crê - não existe despertar, nem porto, destino ou luz; se tudo acabou de vez - acabou, completamente - pode ter certeza, Nina, a vovó está em paz; não sabe nem saberá, que está dormindo pra sempre."

Ziraldo - “Menina Nina, duas razões para não chorar”

"If I was still a SNSD member, I wouldn’t have been able to do this shoot. Idol groups have to always be happy. They have to be kind, and pure, and bright. But I’m already 27 years old. I can’t forever remain a happy little girl. Someone might think after seeing these pictures, ‘Now that she’s out of SNSD, she’s taking off her clothes.’ But I’m not a little girl anymore."

Jessica Jung (Marie Claire interview)

"I want any young men who buy a gun to be treated like young women who seek an abortion. Think about it: a mandatory 48-hours waiting period, written permission from a parent or a judge, a note from a doctor proving that he understands what he is about to do, time spent watching a video on individual and mass murders, traveling hundreds of miles at his own expense to the nearest gun shop, and walking through protestors holding photos of loved ones killed by guns, protestor who call him a murderer."


Quando escrevo algo, frequentemente penso que aquilo é muito importante e que sou uma grande escritora. Acho que acontece com todos. Mas há um cantinho da minha alma onde sempre sei muito bem o que sou, isto é, uma pequena, pequena escritora. Juro que sei. Mas não me importa muito. Natalia Ginzburg
