And My Natural Girlish Charm

Hi. As promised, I will be posting the readers from gonzostore.com quotes. Here is an HST quote that a reader, Joshua Beckler picked:  One of my favorites too.


Indeed.  If the greatest mania of all is passion: and if I am a natural slave to passion: and if the balance between my brain and my soul and my body is as wild and delicate as the skin of a Ming vase –
            Well, that explains a lot of things, doesn’t it?  We need look no further.  Yes sir, and people wonder why I seem makeshift and contradictory, even clinically insane… Hell, I don’t miss those whispers, those soft groans of fear when I enter a civilized room.  I know what they’re thinking, and I know exactly why.  They are extremely uncomfortable with the idea that I am a teenage girl trapped in the body of a sixty-five-year-old career criminal who has already died sixteen times.  Sixteen, all documented.  I have been crushed and beaten and shocked and drowned and poisoned and stabbed and shot and smothered and set on fire by my own bombs…
            All these things have happened, and probably they will happen again.  I have learned a few tricks along the way,  a few random skills and simple avoidance techniques – but mainly it has been luck, I think, and a keen attention to Karma, along with my natural girlish charm.
