“It's not enough to be nice in life. You've got to have nerve.”
Georgia O'Keeffe

C. JoyBell C.
“I just believe that us as women— should not criticize nor pull down other women. And why? Because we’re all just trying our best to be beautiful! We all just want to be loved, we want to be beautiful, we’re all trying to leave our own legacy! The good news is that the universe is unending and that means there is enough space for each woman on earth to leave her own mark and to be her own legacy. To be her own kind of beautiful. So why spend even a second on trying to take away from another woman? Trying to steal, trying to criticize, trying to oppress? There is enough space for every woman and every kind of beautiful, in this vast cosmos! When you waste any amount of time trying to take what is another’s— you are wasting your huge chunk of a galaxy that’s already been given to you!”
C. JoyBell C.

Jon Krakauer
“Most women are all too familiar with men like Calvin Smith. Men whose sense of prerogative renders them deaf when women say, "No thanks," "Not interested," or even "Fuck off, creep.”
Jon Krakauer, Missoula: Rape and the Justice System in a College Town

Patricia V. Davis
“If I had a daughter, here's what I'd tell her:

One day, when you've worked hard for what you want, when people see that you are confident and intelligent and that you recognize your own self-worth, when you take care of yourself, support yourself, and stand up for yourself, that is the day that the world will call you "a cruel and selfish bitch."

It's a tough title to earn and you should be and proud of it.”
Patricia V. Davis, The Diva Doctrine: 16 Universal Principles Every Woman Needs to Know

Nicholas D. Kristof
“Conservatives, who have presumed that the key to preventing AIDS is abstinence-only education, and liberals, who have focused on distribution of condoms, should both note that the intervention that has tested most cost-effective in Africa is neither... Secular bleeding hearts and religious bleeding hearts will have to forge a common cause.”
Nicholas D. Kristof

Deborah L. McCarragher
“Hope is putting Faith "on the line" and expecting results!

(from Mission Possible - Spiritual Covering)”
Deborah L. McCarragher, Mission Possible Spiritual Covering

“Women who accuse men, particularly powerful men, of harassment are often confronted with the reality of the men’s sense that they are more important than women, as a group.”
Anita Hill, Speaking Truth to Power

Karin Slaughter
“What a rapist takes from a woman is her future. The person she is going to become, who she is supposed to be, is gone. In many ways, it's worse than murder, because he has killed that potential person, eradicated that potential life, yet she still lives and breathes, and has to figure out another way to thrive.”
Karin Slaughter, The Good Daughter

عباس محمود العقاد
“هذا الضعف الذي يلازم المرأة أبدا قد جعلها قليلة الركون إلى نفسها عظيمة التعويل على غيرها وصغرها في نظر نفسها فصارت لا ترى لها قدرا إلا في نظر الناس إليها و إنها لتتعلق لهذا السبب بمن يعرض عنها ولا يحفل بها لأنها تحسب إعراضه نقصا فيها على كل حال
وكثيرا ما تعالج إستمالة ذلك المعرض عنها لتزيل ما علق بخاطرها من ريب في قوة جمالها ونفوذ سلطانها والويل لمن تعلم أن لها شأنا كبيرا عنده فإن في الإعجاب بها كل غايتها من الرجل فإذا وثقت من إدراكها عنده لم يبق لها شأن معه وفرغت منه لتنظر تأثير جمالها في سواه ولعل هذا يجعل المراة أحيانا تستصغر نفسها مع الزوج الفاسق و تستصغر الزوج الصالح معها”
عباس محمود العقاد, الإنسان الثاني

Clarissa Pinkola Estés
“A woman's issues of soul cannot be treated by carving her into a more acceptable form as defined by an unconscious culture, nor can she be bent into a more intellectually acceptable shape by those who claim to be the sole bearers of consciousness. No, that is what has already caused millions of women who began as strong and natural powers to become outsiders in their own cultures.”
Clarissa Pinkola Estés, Women Who Run With the Wolves: Myths and Stories of the Wild Woman Archetype

Patricia V. Davis
“I can be totally feminine and totally feminist. The two are not mutually exclusive.”

Patty Houser
“Knowing what we believe and why we believe it is not an option for the Christian, because as believers, OUR BELIEFS ARE THE VERY HEART OF WHO WE ARE.”

“Perhaps all love stories no matter how varied are essentially the same.”
Roy L. Pickering Jr., Matters of Convenience

Roy L. Pickering Jr.
“And although he recognized that tenderness was not the same as passion, and certainly not equivalent to love, for now it seemed to him a suitable substitute.”
Roy L. Pickering Jr., Matters of Convenience

Roy L. Pickering Jr.
“Was she happy? She thought – yes, reasonably so. Then again, what was happiness but the vast terrain between ecstasy and agony? Was this too small an ambition?”
Roy L. Pickering Jr., Matters of Convenience

Roy L. Pickering Jr.
“Life was a swirl of mysteries, each one waiting to be plucked up and explored, but not necessarily solved. As the weight of responsibility bore down on a person, it could feel like a long list of chores leading up to the final one - figuring out how to die with dignity. But Quincy’s interpretation of his surroundings seemed a truer representation of life’s meaning, or rather, the lack of meaning other than to dazzle and delight and befuddle from cradle to grave.”
Roy L. Pickering Jr.

Roy L. Pickering Jr.
“Was happiness (which was perhaps achieved not by getting what you wanted, but rather, by obtaining what you didn’t know you wished for until it was in hand) a hologram that would continually change appearance with the slightest shift of perspective? Or maybe happiness by definition was a temporary state of being recognizable only in hindsight. It was impossible to catch what always managed to be overrun and end up in the rear view mirror.”
Roy L. Pickering Jr., Matters of Convenience

Roy L. Pickering Jr.
“Once you break someone’s heart, you are forever its master.”
Roy L. Pickering Jr., Matters of Convenience

Roy L. Pickering Jr.
“...the locale did not make him think of her, nor did most things. He felt no negativity about the time they had spent together, but simply did not dwell on it much. She had been a seat filler, memorable as the smiling face of a beautiful girl in the window of a passing train, inspiring a fleeting moment of joy and promise, immediately forgotten with the opening of that day’s newspaper.”
Roy L. Pickering Jr., Matters of Convenience

Roy L. Pickering Jr.
“If Audrey sensed what he was contemplating, her silence did not let on. He turned from the window and found her looking at him with a flawless poker face. It may have been attentiveness and curiosity to hear what he would say next, or perhaps she was expecting from him what women throughout the ages, often against their better judgment, had expected of men.”
Roy L. Pickering Jr., Matters of Convenience

Nikki Sex
“I chuckle under my breath. I should’ve known. What woman can look in a mirror and not immediately spot every flaw, real or imaginary?”
Nikki Sex, Kink

Roy L. Pickering Jr.
“...forever meant different things to people at different times. They could imagine what infinity looked and felt like as much as they wanted, but could never truly grasp its meaning nor bear its full weight.”
Roy L. Pickering Jr., Matters of Convenience

Roy L. Pickering Jr.
“His fierce appreciation of female beauty, the unrelenting desire he felt for their company, the pleasure he both derived and sought to give, had led him in and out of quite a few bedroom doors.”
Roy L. Pickering Jr., Matters of Convenience

Roy L. Pickering Jr.
“Most people surrendered fairy tale hopes in exchange for cookie cutter lives”
Roy L. Pickering Jr., Matters of Convenience

Roy L. Pickering Jr.
“It was almost as if she had willed him into existence, into standing before her at the precise moment she was willing to accommodate him, arriving not a minute too early or too late.”
Roy L. Pickering Jr., Matters of Convenience

Roy L. Pickering Jr.
“On occasion he would think back to the fiercest passion it had been his pleasure to experience and reflect on what might have been. He would look upon the woman who occupied the opposite half of his bed and feel his life had not quite lived up to the promise of another day. These moments would be mercifully brief, or so he hoped.”
Roy L. Pickering Jr., Matters of Convenience

Roy L. Pickering Jr.
“Nothing felt better to him than the act of waiting for her. As long as he believed it wasn’t in vain, he was able to justify his presence.”
Roy L. Pickering Jr., Matters of Convenience

Miya Yamanouchi
“Be that kind of girl who smiles when you walk past other girls instead of casting a dirty look. Don't buy into the notion of female competition that society so heavily promotes.”

Helene Uhlfelder
“When I began writing, I did not realize that the Holocaust would become a critical part of the story. During and after WWII, neither the survivors of the Holocaust nor the combat solders were diagnosed or treated for what is now known as PTSD (Post-traumatic Stress Disorder). Many of the characters in this book were victims of this now well-known disorder.”
Helene Uhlfelder, Secrets & Deceptions: A Three-Generation Mystery

Amythyst Raine
“So many people throughout my life have told me who I am, what I must do, what I can't do, what I have to complete, and what I will never be able to accomplish...and then I met the Goddess.”
Amythyst Raine, The Spiritual Feminist
