To resist destruction, self-hatred, or lifelong hopelessness, we have to throw off the conditioning of being despised, the fear of becoming the they that is talked about so dismissively, to refuse lying myths and easy moralities, to see ourselves as human, flawed, and extraordinary. All of usextraordinary.”
—Dorothy Allison (b. 1949)
“The last step taken found your heft
Decidedly upon the left.
One more would throw you on the right.
Another still you see your plight.”
—Robert Frost (18741963)
“The receipt to make a speaker, and an applauded one too, is short and easy.Take of common sense quantum sufficit, add a little application to the rules and orders of the House, throw obvious thoughts in a new light, and make up the whole with a large quantity of purity, correctness, and elegancy of style.”
—Philip Dormer Stanhope, 4th Earl Chesterfield (16941773)
