“Enemies are so stimulating.”

Michael McDowell
“I sort of wish that was what happened though, Ginny, because that would mean the girl is all right. Fourteen-year-old girls have run off before."

Ginny eyed the sheriff severely. "Not fourteen-year-old girls who had grandmas like Evelyn Larkin.”
Michael McDowell, Cold Moon Over Babylon

Michael McDowell
“Benjamin Stallworth understood his shortcomings and was rendered unhappy by that understanding. He was upright enough to wish for correction but too weak to enforce it upon himself.”
Michael McDowell

H.P. Lovecraft
“From even the greatest of horrors irony is seldom absent.”
H.P. Lovecraft, Tales of H.P. Lovecraft

Matthew Gregory Lewis
