“The difference between my darkness and your darkness is that I can look at my own badness in the face and accept its existence while you are busy covering your mirror with a white linen sheet. The difference between my sins and your sins is that when I sin I know I'm sinning while you have actually fallen prey to your own fabricated illusions. I am a siren, a mermaid; I know that I am beautiful while basking on the ocean's waves and I know that I can eat flesh and bones at the bottom of the sea. You are a white witch, a wizard; your spells are manipulations and your cauldron from hell yet you wrap yourself in white and wear a silver wig.”
― C. JoyBell C.

Love this quote! Where did you find it? And, oh yes, I'd love to join you in the gnawing of bones at the bottom of the sea!

Glad you liked that one :) I'm not sure where I found it.. on one of my quote hunts. I have quite few of them that haunt me in one way or another.
