“Who you are when you’re angry is still you. It doesn’t have to be all of you, but it’s a piece of you all the same. If you deny that, you might as well deny your whole maldito self and be done with it”

“She'd spent so much time drowning in her past that she hadn't been able to swim to the surface and see a future for herself that wasn't stained with blood and fear”
Maya Motayne, Nocturna

“People like me, we’re ants, and rulers are just a big foot looming over us ready to squish us into the dirt. Doesn’t matter whose body the foot is attached to, the purpose is still the same.”
Maya Motayne, Nocturna
