liars and weaklings

“I should have stuck around to discover the nature of that soil for myself – but I belong with the liars and weaklings. I cannot lead my betters. If I want to be a hero, it will not be to the jocks, whose interiors have an integrity that springs up from the very center of the earth itself. It will be to the utter liars I find myself here, in the white-walled room that is the typing school’s second-floor studio.”

- Sheila Heti, How Should a Person Be?, pg 34
