Judith Orloff

Joy McCullough
“Because she is not small. She is not weak. She will never, ever be feebleminded,
And above all, she is outraged.

And when they do? Be Judith instead.”
Joy McCullough, Blood Water Paint

“Part of me thinks we're fools to trust either of the, Hapexamendios or His Reconciler. If He was such a loving God, why did He do so much harm? And don't tell me He moves in mysterious ways because that's so much horse shit and we both know it. ”
Clive Barker

“Czy młodość, piękność, może ci być drogą,
Gdy młodą, piękną nie masz być dla kogo?
<***>
Siła u wielkich mierzy się zapałem;
Słaba kobieta więc, wśród mdłego gminu,
Nabywa prawa do wielkiego czynu.
<***>
Każda kobieta wymagać ma prawo,
By mąż w złej dobie był radą i sławą;
Trwożność mężowi mąż wybaczyć może,
Kobieta nigdy. Wybaczym podporze,
Jeśli się złamie; lecz duch nasz nieskory
Wybaczać samą potrzebę podpory.”
Hebbel, Friedrich
