“Strange, she thought, how affected you are by malice when you're a kid, how a mean work or look can unravel you, how devastating cruelty feels when you're too young to protect yourself. But eventually, after all those defense mechanisms are firmly in place, it's the so-called positive shit - mercy, not malice - that brings you to tears.”
Jen Beagin, Vacuum in the Dark

“She smiled. It was rare for her to find someone attractive physically and also to like what came out of their mouth.”
Jen Beagin, Pretend I'm Dead

“You respect me?" Sheila asked, surprised. "As a person?"
"No, as a pigeon.”
Jen Beagin, Pretend I'm Dead
