“She would never be caught unprepared again, she swore to herself. She would never trust. Never love. Never put faith in other human beings again. She would learn all she could of the shape and substance of the world, and she would find a way to survive in it.”
David Anthony Durham, Acacia: The War with the Mein

“Revenge is the easiest of emotions to understand and to manipulate.”
David Anthony Durham, Acacia: The War with the Mein

“She realized that she had naïvely believed that the workings of the world revolved around her and her family. Never before had she acknowledged that somebody else’s life might alter hers.”
David Anthony Durham, Acacia: The War with the Mein
