Here’s a fun fact about Ching Shih:
After several years, the Chinese government came to conclusion that their military forces (even with combined help of England and Portuguese) will never break defenses of Shih’s pirate operation, they finally issued amnesty for all pirates who were willing to return to the shore as a free citizens. She took advantage of this and negotiated pardon for herself and vast majority of her fleet (while even retaining all her wealth).
"Can you be happy with the movies, and the ads, and the clothes in the stores, and the doctors, and the eyes as you walk down the street all telling you there is something wrong with you? No. You cannot be happy. Because, you poor darling baby, you believe them."
"I am, I guess, depressed. I guess I’ve been depressed for about twenty-four years. I can feel a better version of me somewhere in there - hidden behind a liver or attached to a bit of spleen within my stunted, childish body - a Libby that’s telling me to get up, do something, grow up, move on. But the meanness usually wins out."
