Famous quotes containing the words shares and/or preferred:

    Anyone who knows a strange fact shares in its singularity.
    Jean Genet (1910–1986)

    San Francisco is where gay fantasies come true, and the problem the city presents is whether, after all, we wanted these particular dreams to be fulfilled—or would we have preferred others?

Or should our notion of daily life itself be transformed?
    Edmund White (b. 1940)
