"I do a lot of work on violence all the time, you know. I’ve also had that come at me, 'Why are you so obsessed with violence?' And you know my answer? I look at them and I think. 'Why do you say I’m obsessed with violence?' I live in this world- this is what’s going on around me. I can’t change that."

- Ida Applebroog
