Fiona Zedde Quotes

"Just because Ive been gone from this country for most of my life doesnt mean I understand it any less. When I was fifteen I left Jamaica. I knew that I was a lesbian then and, because of what I looked like, I was an out lesbian. It was hard for me. It was hard for the thirteen years I was in England, for various reasons, and its going to be difficult here as well. I dont anticipate anything being easy. But Id rather suffer the chance of someone accosting me for being a dyke than suffer the emotional violence Id do to myself if I wasnt honest about who I am."

Hector Berlioz Quotes

"Fresh proof of the risks you run in writing about players, and of the advisability of not standing to leeward of their self-esteem when one has had the misfortune to wound it in the slightest degree. When you criticize a singer, you do not have his colleagues up in arms against you. Indeed, they generally feel that you have not been severe enough. But the virtuoso instrumentalist who belongs to a well-known musical organization always claims that in criticizing him you are insulting the whole institution, and though the contention is absurd he sometimes succeeds in making the other players believe it."

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow Quotes

"I shot an arrow into the air,It fell to earth, I knew not where;For, so swiftly it flew, the sightCould not follow it in its flight.I breathed a song into the air,It fell to earth, I knew not where;For who has sight so keen and strong,That it can follow the flight of song?Long, long afterward, in an oakI found the arrow, still unbroke;And the song, from beginning to end,I found again in the heart of a friend."

Pete McCarthy Quotes
