The wisdom of Arundhati Roy in 10 quotes

We collected her most memorable quotes to comfort and inspire us

Acutely intelligent, Arundhati Roy (read our interview with her here) has kept forest fires ablaze in the intellectual community since she published her scathing takedown of Shekhar Kapur's Bandit Queen in 1994. When she spoke to ELLE, we discovered, at the heart of this sharp woman was a dizzying, girlish, humanness that made us want to go back to her writings and see the woman in her words. Here's our bedtime reading list.
