“He’s a steamroller in my life and I like to be laid out flat. I like his hands on my chest, pushing me down whenever my back turns to the span of a bridge. His hands on my thighs, forcing me flat, flat, flat. Yes. Yes, I like that.”
Laura A. Lord, The Telling

“There’s a lamentation in the flutter of your lash.”
Laura A. Lord, Perjury

“We don’t have no say, ‘cause we was an afterthought. He yanked us up out o’ man’s ribs, but He made man out the Earth. He made him out the dirt and the mud and made him out the world, so man is the world. Women…women just a part o’ men.” Elaine snubbed the cigarette out, tapped the dark leather case on the edge of the table and I watched as another slim, white stick slid free.”
Laura A. Lord, History of a Woman

Pierre Boulle

“Be yourself; everyone else is already taken.”
