Chuck Palahniuk
The first step - especially for young people with energy and drive and talent, but not money - the first step to controlling your world is to control your culture. To model and demonstrate the kind of world you demand to live in. To write the books. Make the music. Shoot the films. Paint the art.
Chuck Palahniuk

Naomi Wolf
Women who love themselves are threatening; but men who love real women, more so.
Naomi Wolf, The Beauty Myth
