H.L. Mencken
In the present case it is a little inaccurate to say I hate everything. I am strongly in favor of common sense, common honesty and common decency. This makes me forever ineligible to any public office of trust or profit in the Republic. But I do not repine, for I am a subject of it only by force of arms.
H.L. Mencken

Kiera Cass
You get confused by crying women, I get confused by walks with princes.
Kiera Cass, The Selection
