He loved women. No denying that. Pin-ups in Quentin’s bedroom still smiled back at him from all those turbulent teen-age years. But who loved him back? Not his mother. Not hard-of-hearing Aunt Clarisse who called him “slow and a good bit retarded” loud enough for him to hear her cruelty a room away.

I could’ve loved the death of nature, embraced it like a friend.

I could have loved all things white.
