Victor LaValle, Big Machine (speigel & Grau, 2010 )

I used to go through all the rigamarole of explaining my background to anyone who’d listen. Really trying to make a case that I was normal. But when I got older, I realized I was basically begging others to think better of me, and you can’t beg people to treat you with respect. Either they choose do it or you go around them. Don’t waste time dignifying fools (95)
