“A snake that could harm you, you don’t have much choice to kill. You wouldn’t be able to leave a cobra in your sock drawer. But a snake that is no threat will greatly define the man who decides to kill it anyways.”
Tiffany McDaniel, The Summer That Melted Everything

“A foolish mistake, it is, to expect the beast, because sometimes, sometimes, it is the flower's turn to own the name.”
Tiffany McDaniel, The Summer that Melted Everything

“People always ask, Why does God allow suffering? Why does He allow a child to be beaten? A woman to cry? A holocaust to happen? A good dog to die painfully? Simple truth is, He wants to see for Himself what we’ll do. He’s stood up the candle, put the devil at the wick, and now He wants to see if we blow it out or let it burn down. God is suffering’s biggest spectator.”
Tiffany McDaniel, The Summer that Melted Everything
