One of them snickered.
I'd never been more humiliated in my life.”
Jennifer L. Armentrout, Obsidian

Laura Moriarty
“My mother says that when Mrs. Rowley is mean, which is generally the case, it is really because she is just unhappy, and who could blame her with a husband like that . . . She says this is really the only reason people are ever mean--they have something hurting inside of them, a claw of unhappiness scratching at their hearts, and it hurts them so much that sometimes they have to push it right out of their mouths to scratch someone else, just to give themselves a rest, a moment of relief.”
Laura Moriarty

I think he's more afraid of you than you are of him." Lexi could feel her mother smiling. She liked her mother's smile. It took up her entire face, radiating from her lips to her dimples to the crinkles around her eyes. "He's new here, and I think he is a very lonely little boy. Do you know why he is mean? He doesn't know how to be nice.”

“The Mean People
You don't know
Who is who
In this concept
On every step
You should keep
Your mind alert
The most of the best
And the fair
Can be easily hurt
When the ugly character
And mean people flirt.”
Ehsan Sehgal
