Carly Craig Quotes

"A lot of female comedians will go up there in a sweatshirt and Converses, trying to dress themselves down, because it is sort of a boys club. Ill go up in my heels.

Ariel Levy Quotes

"There are some women who are probably genuinely aroused by the idea of being photographed naked. But I think we can safely assume that many more women appear in Playboy for the simple reason that they are paid to. Which is fine. But because I was paid to is not the same thing as Im taking control of my sexuality."

Erika Hall Quotes

Quotes About Big Brothers From Little Sisters

"Lola writes in her notebook: Leaf-fleas are even worse. Someone said, They dont bite people, because people dont have leaves. Lola writes, When the sun is beating down, they bite everything, even the wind. And we all have leaves. Leaves fall off when you stop growing, because childhood is all gone. And they grow back when you shrivel up, because love is all gone. Leaves spring up at will, writes Lola, just like tall grass. Two or three children in the village dont have any leaves, and those have a big childhood. A child like that is an only child, because it has a father and a mother who have been to school. The leaf-fleas turn older children into younger ones - a four-year-old into a three-year-old, a three-year-old into a one-year-old. Even a six-months-old, writes Lola, and even a newborn. And the more little brothers and sisters the leaf-fleas make, the smaller the childhood becomes." - Author: Herta Müller

Quotes About Pitiful

"The artist (I suppose) usually pays for the privilege by some sort of partial insomnia, by the possession of one faculty that will not be controlled nor put to sleep. In a poet this must often be the visual imagination, bringing before his eyes a succession of images which he never summoned, and of which some (it is only too likely) will be ugly or pitiful." - Author: Mary Lascelles

If devils can harm me, then there isnt any justice.A voice behind him said, "There isnt." - Author: Fredric Brown

Quotes About You Know My Name Not My Story

"My story is about all I got to my name right now, and thats why I feel robbed. But a storys a whole lot more than most people got. All you people watching out there, youre listening to what I say because I have something you dont: I got plot. Bought and paid for. Thats what all you people want, and why youre sucking off me. You want my plot. I know how you feel too, since hey, I used to feel the same way. TV and video games and movies and computer screens... On April 8th, 1999, I jumped into the screen, I switched to watchee. Ever since, Ive known what my life is about. I give good story. It may have been kinda gory, but admit it, you all loved it. You ate it up. Nuts, I ought to be on some government payroll. Without people like me, the whole country would jump off a bridge, cause the only thing on TV is some housewife on Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? winning $64,000 for remembering the name of the presidents dog." - Author: Lionel Shriver

Quotes About Begs

"Joe hid his grin. "A little grab-ass is not accosting." At the worst of times, Luna could amuse him. And now he finally had her where he wanted her. ...Her mesmerizing eyes shone with annoyance and disbelief. "I barely knew you, Joe. I brought you a sandwich, and half a minute later you had your hands all over me."Despite his aches and pains, the memory warmed Joe. Locking onto her gaze, he said in his defense, "You have that kind of bottom, honey. All round and soft." Her color deepened. "Of all the stupid, sexist--" "Its irresistible," Joe insisted, and meant it. "It begs for a mans hands. It--" There looked to be an explosion imminent, so Joe wisely let that go for now and instead distracted her. "And for your information, no. I didnt get beat up by a woman." He snorted. "How absurd is that?" "I dunno." Her body vibrated with tension. "Im ready to beat you up."-Joe and Luna" - Author: Lori Foster
