Catherine Lacey
“I'm not a person who needs people, but I am the kind of person who needs to be near people who don't need me.”
Catherine Lacey, Nobody Is Ever Missing

Jenny Holzer
“Ruin your fucking self before they do. Otherwise they'll screw you because you're a nobody. They'll keep you alive but you'll have to crawl and say "thank-you" for every bone they throw. You might as well stay drunk or shoot junk and be a crazy fucker. If the rich guys want to play with you, make them get their hands dirty. Send them away gagging, or sobbing if they're soft-hearted. You'll be left alone if you're frightening, and dead you're free!”
Jenny Holzer

Casey Plett
“Who knew, Lizzy thought, the finite amount of nights in her life where she would sleep with her hand around a trusted body. That trusted hers. It wouldn't be a lot, anyway, would it.”
Casey Plett, A Safe Girl to Love

Octavia E. Butler
“I can change myself, but it’s an effort. And it doesn’t last. It’s easier to do as water does: allow myself to be contained, and take on the shape of my containers.”
Octavia Butler

Theodor W. Adorno
“Pleasure always means not to think about anything, to forget suffering even where it is shown. Basically it is helplessness. It is flight; not, as is asserted, flight from a wretched reality, but from the last remaining thought of resistance.”
Theodor Adorno, Dialectic of Enlightenment: Philosophical Fragments
