"No wolf or bear just gives up when they get beat or hungry. you ever seen a bear jump off a cliff 'cause life handed him a few rough draws? No, you haven't. The wild keeps going till it don't have strength in the muscles and bones. The wild don't give up; it's forever, and so was I."
-Beth Lewis, The Wolf Road
"There is exquisite pleasure in subduing an insolent spirit, in making a person predetermined to dislike acknowledge one's superiority."
-Jane Austen, Lady Susan
