"I SWEAR AND PROMISE BEFORE
GOD, AUTHOR AND CREATOR OF ALL THINGS... NEVER TO TEACH UNGRATEFUL PERSONS OR FOOLS THE SECRETS AND MYSTERIES OF THE TRADE... NEVER TO DIVULGE THE SECRETS CONFIDED TO ME... NEVER TO ADMINISTER POISONS... TO DISAVOW AND SHUN AS A PESTILENCE THE SCANDALOUS AND PERNICIOUS OF QUACKS, EMPIRICS AND ALCHYMISTS... AND TO KEEP NO STALE OR BAD DRUG IN MY SHOP. MAY GOD CONTINUE TO BLESS ME SO LONG AS I CONTINUE TO OBEY THESE THINGS!" ---ANCIENT APOTHECARY'S OATH
For my parents

This glass object---delicate and yet still intact, somewhat like myself---was proof that I could be brave, adventurous, and do hard things on my own.
"First, there was trust. Then, there was betrayal. You cannot have one without the other. You cannot be betrayed by someone you do not trust."
History doesn't record the intricacies of woman's relationships with one another; they're not to be uncovered.
