“Most children have a taste for spoliation. Tearing things apart is easier than making them. So annihilation is a kind of laziness. But it still provides the satisfactions of agency: I wreck, therefore I am. Besides, for most people, construction is tight, concentrated, bunchy, whereas vandalism offers release.”

– Lionel Shriver, We Need to Talk About Kevin
