Carmen Maria Machado
“He is not a bad man, and that, I realize suddenly, is the root of my hurt.”
Carmen Maria Machado, Her Body and Other Parties: Stories

Daniel Woodrell
“A person has to show some spirit -- fate just about never shines on chickenshits.”
Daniel Woodrell, Tomato Red

Lindy West
“This is the only advice I can offer. Each time something like this happens, take a breath and ask yourself, honestly: Am I dead? Did I die? Is the world different? Has my soul splintered into a thousand shards and scattered to the winds? I think you’ll find, in nearly every case, that you are fine. Life rolls on. No one cares. Very few things—apart from death and crime—have real, irreversible stakes, and when something with real stakes happens, humiliation is the least of your worries.”
Lindy West, Shrill: Notes from a Loud Woman

Lindy West
“We only get one life. Wasting someone’s time is the subtlest form of murder.”
Lindy West

Joe R. Lansdale
“The problem, kid," Shorty said, "is there is no one on either side of the fence keeping measurements about what you do. God is an idea, and the devil is us.”
Joe Lansdale
