"Mamaw felt disloyalty acutely. She loathed anything that smacked of a lack of complete devotion to family. In her own home, she'd say things like 'I'm sorry I'm so damned mean,' and 'You know I love you, but I'm just a crazy bitch.' But if she knew of anyone criticizing so much as her socks to an outsider, she'd fly off the handle. 'I don't know those people. You never talk about family to some stranger. Never.''

From the book Hillbilly Elegy by J.D. Vance. Page 41.
