Famous quotes containing the words dark and/or forces:

    Stereotypes fall in the face of humanity. You toodle along, thinking that all gay men wear leather after dark and should never, ever be permitted around a Little League field. And then one day your best friend from college, the one your kids adore, comes out to you.
    Anna Quindlen (b. 1952)

    There will be no greater burden on our generation than to organize the forces of liberty in our time in order to make our quest of a new freedom for America.
    Woodrow Wilson (1856–1924)
