“Those women who had gone out with Germans were grabbed and treated very badly, often shaved totally bald so that everyone could see who they were. Some were taken prisoners. There had been so much suffering during the war because of the betrayal of those collaborators, so many killed and hurt because of what they had done to families, that the mood for revenge against the traitors was very high. It was not right, but it was understandable.”
Diet Eman, Things We Couldn't Say

“Revenge is a color, a color that never fades. A beautiful color. It is the color of the sky at dawn when lovers are hauled out of their beds and garroted in the middle of the street; the color of the ancient sea when Noah’s Ark has been breached below the water line; the color of Jacob’s Ladder as it collapses while Jacob has climbed only half-way to heaven. But it is more than that, much more. It contains the pigment that colors the eyes of the lovers that betray you.”
Mark Romel, The Mistletoe Murders: A Nietzschean Murder Mystery

Bernard Cornwell
“And thus Lancelot died, though the songs he had paid for lived on, and to this day he
is celebrated as a hero equal to Arthur. Arthur is remembered as a ruler, but Lancelot
is called the warrior. In truth he was the King without land, a coward, and the greatest
traitor of Britain, and his soul wanders Lloegyr to this day, screaming for its shadowbody that can never exist because we cut his corpse into scraps and fed it to the river.
If the Christians are right, and there is a hell, may he suffer there for ever.”
Bernard Cornwell, Excalibur

And do not know ourselves; when we hold rumour
From what we fear, yet know not what we fear,
But float upon a wild and violent sea
Each way and none”

Her transition was born of necessity.”
Nancy Rubin Stuart, Defiant Brides: The Untold Story of Two Revolutionary-Era Women and the Radical Men They Married

By the early twentieth century, members of her family attempted to correct that view.”
Nancy Rubin Stuart, Defiant Brides: The Untold Story of Two Revolutionary-Era Women and the Radical Men They Married
