“It can be really painful to have to face how fucked up shit is and how scared people are…of being alive. Scared of things that are amazing. Scared of things that aren’t like television or aren’t dead. A lot of people can’t deal with three-dimensional human beings, they only know how to deal with other products — they see themselves as other products. When the world only treats you like a dot on a marketing scheme, you can learn to treat yourself and other people like that.”
Kathleen Hanna

Gertrude Stein
“If you can't say anything nice about anyone else, come sit next to me.”
Gertrude Stein

James Baldwin
“People can't, unhappily, invent their mooring posts, their lovers and their friends, anymore than they can invent their parents. Life gives these and also takes them away and the great difficulty is to say Yes to life.”
James Baldwin, Giovanni's Room

William S. Burroughs
“There is no intensity of love or feeling that does not involve the risk of crippling hurt. It is a duty to take this risk, to love and feel without defense or reserve.”
William S. Burroughs

“Hustlers of the world, there is one mark you cannot beat: the mark inside.”
