"I am fucking insane but my intentions are gold and my heart is pure."
"My father had taught me to be nice first, because you can always be mean later, but once you’ve been mean to someone, they won’t believe the nice anymore. So be nice, be nice, until it’s time to stop being nice, then destroy them."
"He folded his fear into a perfect rose. He held it out in the palm of his hand. She took it from him and put it in her hair."
Arundhati Roy, The God of Small Things
