Charles Dickens
“It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to Heaven, we were all going direct the other way – in short, the period was so far like the present period, that some of its noisiest authorities insisted on its being received, for good or for evil, in the superlative degree of comparison only.”
Charles Dickens, A Tale of Two Cities

Criss Jami
“Every new generation believes its own period to be absolutely superior intellectually - greater than all past cultures yet equal among its modern cultures.”

Israelmore Ayivor
“Never fear what people will say... Never think you can't do it because it was never done before! You can be the source of change that is suspending for quite a long period now! You too can fly!”
Israelmore Ayivor, The Great Hand Book of Quotes

Criss Jami
“The foundation of morality on the human sentiments of what is acceptable behavior versus repulsive behavior has always made morals susceptible to change. Much of what was repulsive 100 years ago is normal today, and - although it may be a slippery slope - what is repulsive today is possible to be normal 100 years into tomorrow; the human standard has always been but to push the envelope. In this way, all generations are linked, and one can only hope that every extremist, self-proclaimed progressive is considering this ultimate 'Utopia' to which his kindness will lead at the end of the chain.”
Criss Jami, Healology

Mimi Strong

Mimi Strong, Blind Date Teddy Bear

Lindy West
“So I was forced to go to school wearing a menstrual pad belt that had been in our first aid drawer since approximately 1961. If you've never seen one of these things, because you haven't been to the antiquities museum, it is a literal belt that goes around your waist, with two straps that dangle down in your front and back cracks, ice cold metal clips holding a small throw pillow in place over your shame canyon.”
Lindy West, Shrill: Notes from a Loud Woman

“Ze wilde graag nog wat langer boos op hem zijn. Vooral omdat het touwtje van haar tampon slecht zat en ze het zo oneerlijk vond dat Andreas nooit het verdrietige gevoel van een verkeerd tamponkoordje zou begrijpen. Hij zou haar überhaupt nooit begrijpen.”
Lara Taveirne, Hotel zonder sterren

Enock Maregesi
“Sentensi ni mkusanyiko wa maneno unaoanza na herufi kubwa na kuisha na alama ya kushangaa, kuuliza, au nukta. Sentensi bora ni fupi, angavu, sahihi, yenye mantiki, na kamilifu.”
Enock Maregesi

Yannick Murphy
“If caught wearing white and you stain, stand and spread out your skirt, let the boys read into it shapes like blots of ink.”
Yannick Murphy, Here They Come

Vikrmn
“Just win. Period.”
Vikrmn, Corpkshetra

Phyllis Reynolds Naylor
“I sure wasn't going to ask Aunt Sally, because if she told me once that getting your period was like a moth becoming a butterfly, she'd probably say that sexual intercourse was like a deer getting antlers or something.”
Phyllis Reynolds Naylor, Alice on the Outside

Gena Showalter
“I'm not sure what's wrong with me. I'm not Justin Silverstone's biggest fan, but he's not a bad guy. Despite the mistakes he made in the past, he recently helped us destroy Anima from inside out. He's proven himself. And yet, the moment he put his arm around Camilla and turned on his megawatt smile, Ive wanted to open him up from navel to nose, just to play Operation. Same way I reacted when the waiter touched her.
I think I'm on my period.”
Gena Showalter, A Mad Zombie Party

Christina Engela
“The Beetle’s body, whether it be a ’49 split or a ’73 Jeans Bug, or an ‘03 Mexican, was originally conceived in the mid 1930’s. This is evident in it’s body styling which aside from it’s rear engine layout and absence of front radiator (or radiator!) grille, is very similar to other cars of the same period. Believe it or not, in those days streamlining was a hot new concept, kind of like how wireless networking is today with computing.
The only problem was, in the beginning they didn’t seem to realize that streamlining ought to be applied sideways as well as longitudinally!”
Christina Engela, Bugspray

Vikrmn
“And You win. Period.”
Vikrmn, Corpkshetra

“Be a partaker, it’s the period of the end-time harvest”
Sunday Adelaja

Anurag Shourie
“There is nothing more agonising than the memory of good times when you are going through a difficult period in life. Life moves in only one direction - forward, but the memoirs of years gone by keep on haunting one’s soul till the time one is alive. Nostalgia can be more painful than a surgeon’s knife.”
Anurag Shourie

Vikrmn
“Win the dreams. Period.”
Vikrmn, Corpkshetra

Israelmore Ayivor
“Never fear what people will say... Never think you can't do it because it was never done before! You can be the source of change that is suspending for quiet a long period now! You too can fly!”
Israelmore Ayivor, The Great Hand Book of Quotes

Lani Lynn Vale
“I started my day waking up in a pool of my own blood. Is that how you'd like to end yours?" -Lenore, period day 1.”
Lani Lynn Vale, Whiskey Neat

“Ma dalla più povera alla più ricca, dalla più ignorante alla più istruita, le mestruazioni restano ancora oggi il tabù numero uno, inserito nella Top Ten delle cose la cui esistenza si accenna sottovoce con aria cospiratoria, passandosi un tampone interno come se trattasse del manoscritto destinato a rivelare che Gesù era una donna o della formula segreta di quella bevanda frizzante che causa obesità in tutto il mondo.”
Élise Thiébaut, Ceci est mon sang: Petite histoire des règles, de celles qui le ont et de ceux qui les font

Anne Frank
“Whenever I get my period (and that’s only been three times), I have the feeling that in spite of all the pain, discomfort and mess, I’m carrying around a sweet secret. So even though it’s a nuisance, in a certain way I’m always looking forward to the time when I’ll feel that secret inside me once again.”
Anne Frank, The Diary of a Young Girl

Deyth Banger
“If you start moving it for later and for other "period" in life action… then you really fucked up.”
Deyth Banger
