She didn’t know what she thought…

“She didn’t know what she thought. Was Elphaba devil’s spawn? Was she half-elf? Was she punishment for her father’s failure as a preacher, or for her mother’s sloppy morals and bad memory? Or was she merely a physical ailment, a blight like a misshapen apple or a five-legged calf? Nanny knew her worldview was foggy and chaotic. Perhaps, thought Nanny, little green Elphaba chose her own sex, and her own colour, and to hell with her parents.”

– Gregory Maguire
