"California is the most reactionary state in America. Fascist sentiments are very strong here."

Angela N Blount Quotes

"Romantic love, I think, requires a degree of physical attraction, but devotion is needed to maintain it as an actual relationship. Physical attraction is a feeling you dont really have control over, but devotion is something that has to be chosen. So, ideally... I suppose its passion combined with the commitment to value someone else completely above oneself."

Quentin Crisp Quotes

"If a man were to look over the fence on one side of his garden and observe that the neighbor on his left had laid his garden path round a central lawn; and were to look over the fence on the other side of his garden and observe that the neighbor on his right had laid his path down the middle of the lawn, and were then to lay his own garden path diagonally from one corner to the other, that mans soul would be lost. Originality is only to be praised when not prefaced by the look to right and left."

Quotes About Taking Chances On Love

"Because cooks love the social aspect of food, cooking for one is intrinsically interesting. A good meal is like a present, and it can feel goofy, at best, to give yourself a present. On the other hand, there is something life affirming in taking the trouble to feed yourself well, or even decently. Cooking for yourself allows you to be strange or decadent or both. The chances of liking what you make are high, but if it winds up being disgusting, you can always throw it away and order a pizza; no one else will know. In the end, the experimentation, the impulsiveness, and the invention that such conditions allow for will probably make you a better cook." - Author: Jenni Ferrari Adler

Quotes About Marthas Vineyard

"Its one thing to develop a nostalgia for home while youre boozing with Yankee writers in Marthas Vineyard or being chased by the bulls in Pamplona. Its something else to go home and visit with the folks in Reeds drugstore on the square and actually listen to them. The reason you cant go home again is not because the down-home folks are mad at you--theyre not, dont flatter yourself, they couldnt care less--but because once youre in orbit and you return to Reeds drugstore on the square, you can stand no more than fifteen minutes of the conversation before you head for the woods, head for the liquor store, or head back to Marthas Vineyard, where at least you can put a tolerable and saving distance between you and home. Home may be where the heart is but its no place to spend Wednesday afternoon." - Author: Walker Percy

Quotes About Missing People

"Douglas has more books- and comic books- than anyone I know. Still, if you wanted to borrow one, and took it down off the shelf and forgot to mention it to him, Douglas would notice right away it was missing, even though there are maybe a thousand other ones that look exactly like it right on the shelf beside it. Douglas is one of those books people" - Author: Meg Cabot

Quotes About Ashby

"Oh, I dont mind his being wicked: hes all the better for that; and as for disliking him--I shouldnt greatly object to being Lady Ashby of Ashby Park, if I must marry. But if I could be always young, I would be always single. I should like to enjoy myself horoughly, and coquet with all the world, till I am on the verge of being called an old maid; and then, to escape the infamy of that, after having made ten thousand conquests, to break all their hearts save one, by marrying some high-born, rich, indulgent husband, whom, on the other hand, fifty ladies were dying to have.Well, as long as you entertain these views, keep single by all means, and never marry at all: not even to escape the infamy of old-maidenhood." - Author: Anne Brontë

Quotes About Innocence And Evil

"My parents had torn through my innocence and left me with a tar-like substance that was corrupting what was left of me.

Quotes About Captain Save A Hoe

"Several months ago there was a somewhat, in some peoples eyes, relatively normal Cal--or by and large normal--the best he was able to be as half Auphe. Occasionally he did lose his shit, attacked and ate deer while on road trips through the woods, created massive holes in between dimensions to shove through malevolently murderous pucks, and once in a while ripped out an Auphes throat with his teeth. He also opened a gate or two to save his friends, blew up an antihealer from the inside out to save the world, cleaned his guns while watching porn, and generally was a smart-ass to everyone.Normal." - Author: Rob Thurman
