"I myself have never been able to find out precisely what feminism is: I only know that people call me a feminist whenever I express sentiments that differentiate me from a doormat or a prostitute." -Rebecca West (1892-1983)
"Love is the triumph of imagination over intelligence."
"I didn't just heed what I was taught, men and women should be together, it's the natural way, that kind of thing. I'm not with you because of what family, society, life tried to instill in me from day one. The way the world is, how seldom it is that you meet that one person who just *gets* you - it's so rare. My parents didn't really have it. There were no examples set for me in the world of male-female relationships. And to cut oneself off from finding that person, to immediately halve your options by eliminating the possibility of finding that one person within your own gender, that just seemed stupid to me. So I didn't." --Alyssa, from Chasing Amy
"It's funny how beautiful people look when they're walking out the door." --Mandy Slade, from Velvet Goldmine
"We set out to change the world... ended up just changing ourselves." --Kurt Wild, from Velvet Goldmine
"I'm looking for baggage that goes with mine." --Mimi, from Rent
"Love a little more, 'cause everyone's broken." --from "Real to Me" by Nichole Nordeman
But what if you're wrong? What if there's more? What if there's hope you've never dreamed of hoping for? What if You jump? Just close your eyes. What if the arms that catch you, catch you by suprise? What if He's more than enough? What if it's love?" --from "What if" by Nichole Nordeman
"there is thing keeping everyone's lungs and lips locked it is called fear and it's seeing a great renaissance after the show you can not sing wherever you want but for now let's just pretend that we're gonna get bombed so sing..." --from "Sing" by the Dresden Dolls
