Patricia Highsmith
“That's exactly where you're wrong! Any kind of person can murder. Purely circumstances and not a thing to do with temperament! People get so far -- and it takes just the least little thing to push them over the brink. Anybody. Even your grandmother. I know.”
Patricia Highsmith, Strangers on a Train

Maggie Georgiana Young
“Affairs began, drama spread, and traditional, good-old-boy camaraderie was tainted by the temptresses who represented the inconvenience of feminism.”
Maggie Georgiana Young, Just Another Number
