Thursday Quotables: Charming

quotation-marks4

Welcome back to Thursday Quotables! This weekly feature is the place to highlight a great quote, line, or passage discovered during your reading each week.  Whether it’s something funny, startling, gut-wrenching, or just really beautifully written, Thursday Quotables is where my favorite lines of the week will be, and you’re invited to join in!

This week’s Thursday Quotable:

I mean, yeah, I lost everything I ever worked for or cared about or believed in because of my condition, and I can’t ever just relax and enjoy life because the great-grandchildren of people I grew up idolizing are trying to hunt me down and kill me, and a woman I loved was killed because of me, and I sometimes feel this other thing scratching away at my consciousness, and I can’t tell if it’s trying to get in or trying to get out, which is a little unsettling, and according to the little voices that were beaten into me from an early age by strict Catholic monster hunters, I’m damned and going to hell, which can be a bit hard on my self-esteem to put it mildly. But it could be worse. So, yeah, I’m lucky, OK? I’m blessed. And by the way, shove it up your ass.

And one more:

My instinct was that she should find the son of a bitch right then and force the issue into the open, but my instinct was also to stab him immediately afterward, multiple times. I still had no idea how I was going to broach that topic with Sig. She didn’t drink wine, and even if she did, I didn’t know if red or white was appropriate for telling a woman that you want to kill her former lover. Do they have greeting cards for that sort of thing?
