Faulkner is addictive; having once entered his sweaty, sinewy, senuous, scary world of Yoknapatawpha, no matter how much I squirm, and suffer, I can't go, and I can't stay neither:
"Girls are different from boys.
It's not that she was bad. There's not any such thing as a woman born bad, because they are all born bad, born with the badness in them. The thing is, to get them married before the badness comes to a natural head. But we try to make them conform to a system that says a woman can't be married until she reaches a certain age. And nature don't pay any attention to systems, let alone women paying any attention to them, or to anything."
