Quotes from "The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao"

“- Nothing else has any efficacy, I might as well be myself.
- But your yourself sucks!
- It is, lamentably, all I have.” 
― Junot Díaz, The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao
 
Dude wore his nerdiness like a Jedi wore his light saber or a Lensman her lens. Couldn't have passed for Normal if he'd wanted to.*(p. 21)
