Lace had obeyed. Her whole life, she'd obeyed. She'd done makeup for the all the sirenas, even when it meant she couldn't finish her own. She'd hidden her escamas even though they were the part of her body she loved most, all because Abuela was sure people would call her and her cousins los monstrous if their scales ever showed.
~ The Weight of Feathers by Anna-Marie McLemore, pg. 85
Trust. What does it even mean? You hand someone the knife to stab you with when you trust them. I know this much is true. I hitter and skitter, but Shane can help me put food in my fridge, keep my lights on, keep the Cooking Channel for Wren, keep us together. My hand may have been shaking, but I had to give that stranger-girl the knife, even knowing how sharp it might be.

~ My Antonia by Willa Cather, pg. 10
