Maybe what I did today will give courage to others who are hiding who they are to fit in. I finally feel like I can live on my own terms. I want everyone to have that freedom.

Over the Top by Jonathan Van Ness
We have unfortunately had very narrow definitions of beauty crammed down our throats for a long time. There are endless sexy shapes, colors, forms, and kinds of people who deserve celebration. It’s each one of our jobs to reject that comparison of what we think beauty is and realize we are the motherfucking beauty.

I know I read the original book as a kid, and have been meaning to revisit it as an adult. This was a great way to get a refresher on the story, and I think it lends itself really well to the graphic novel adaptation. There's so much great imagery: M ...more

I can’t see anything, nothing at all, and that is worse than seeing. That is the true horror of ghosts—you can never see what you’re up against.

“I believed that books might save him because I knew they had so far, and because I knew the people books had saved. They were college professors and actors and scientists and poets. They got to college and sat on dorm floors drinking coffee, amazed they'd finally found their soul mates. They always dressed a little out of season. Their names were enshrined on the pink cards in the pockets of all the forgotten hardbacks in every library basement in America. If the librarians were lazy enough or nostalgic enough or smart enough, those names would stay there forever.”
Rebecca Makkai, The Borrower

A.S. King
“The world is full of assholes. What are you doing to make sure you're not one of them?”
A.S. King, Everybody Sees the Ants

Douglas Adams
“But don’t you understand that people live or die on your word?”

The ruler of the Universe waited for as long as he could. When he heard the faint sound of the ship’s engines starting he spoke to cover it.

“It’s nothing to do with me,” he said, “I am not involved with people. The Lord knows I am not a cruel man.”

“Ah!” barked Zarniwoop, “you say `The Lord’. You believe in something!”

“My cat,” said the man benignly, picking it up and stroking it, “I call him The Lord. I am kind to him.”
Douglas Adams, The Restaurant at the End of the Universe

Walter Dean Myers
“We’re suggesting that [kids are] missing something if they don’t read but, actually, we’re condemning kids to a lesser life. If you had a sick patient, you would not try to entice them to take their medicine. You would tell them, ‘Take this or you’re going to die.’ We need to tell kids flat out: reading is not optional.”
Walter Dean Myers

Tim Dorsey
“A prosthetic leg with a Willie Nelson bumper sticker washed ashore on the beach, which meant it was Florida.


Then it got weird.”
