Quotes: Start of Darkness
There are those hearts, reader, that never mend again once they are broken. Or, if they do mend, they heal themselves in a crooked and lopsided way, as if sewn together by a careless craftsman.

"There must have been a moment, at the beginning, where we could have said - no. But somehow we missed it."

"One never learns how the witch became wicked, or whether that was the right choice for her - is it ever the right choice? Does the devil ever struggle to be good again, or if so is he not a devil?"
Oatsie Manglehand, Wicked

All things truly wicked start from an innocence.
Ernest Hemingway, A Movable Feast

No one becomes depraved all at once.
Juvenal, Satires

In every man's heart there is a devil, but we do not know the man as bad until the devil is roused.
James Oliver Curwood, The Case of Beauvais
