Quotes about thievery


1. Pain produces progress. So if you truly love me, you will try to hurt me as much as you can. If you really want me to grow as a person, you will water me with betrayal, abuse, neglect, derision, thievery, and possibly even torture.
- Jarod Kintz, Love quotes for the ages. Specifically ages 18-81.
