Pacifica (autumnwinds) wrote,

“The wonder to me now it that I thought myself worth saving…I reached out and clung for life with my good left hand like a claw, grasping at moving legs to raise myself from the dirt. Desperate to save myself in a river of people saving themselves. And if they chanced to look down and see me struggling underneath them, they saw that even the crooked girl believed her own life was precious. That is what it means to be a beast in the kingdom.”

~Adah, The Poisonwood Bible
