Those of us chosen to live Below knew we were lucky, but our hearts were also broken. We wept for those left Above. We wandered the streets of our beautiful city and we felt so cold. Though we knew it meant death, we began to want to get back to the Above.

"Sand crab," Leon said. "It won't hurt you." "It sure is ugly." "Ugly never hurt a thing." I scoffed. "Oh, ugly has hurt some things. It's just that pretty hurts more."

I was gradually recovering from the physical effects of the blow, but not from the shock of it. I knew the man was not my husband, but the resemblance was so strong and my habits so ingrained, that I had been half-inclined to trust him, and had spoken to him as I would have to Frank, expecting civility, if not active sympathy. To have those feelings abruptly turned inside out by his vicious attack was what was making me ill now.
~ Outlander by Diana Gabaldon, pg. 174
