Maddy and 2 other people liked Sasha's review of Pride and Prejudice:
Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
"I hated this book in high school: dense, incomprehensibly roundabout, uppity and difficult. I tried reading it many times, I even saw a play version, and continued to think of this as shallow bullcrap. Despite loving the English teacher with his t..." Read more of this review »

Audre Lorde
“Black and Third World people are expected to educate white people as to our humanity. Women are expected to educate men. Lesbians and gay men are expected to educate the heterosexual world. The oppressors maintain their position and evade their responsibility for their own actions. There is a constant drain of energy which might be better used in redefining ourselves and devising realistic scenarios for altering the present and constructing the future.”
Audre Lorde, Sister Outsider: Essays and Speeches

Audre Lorde
“If I didn't define myself for myself, I would be crunched into other people's fantasies for me and eaten alive.”
Audre Lorde

Kakuzō Okakura
“For life is an expression, our unconscious actions the constant betrayal of our innermost thought.”
Kakuzo Okakura, The Book of Tea

Ursula K. Le Guin
“It is good to have an end to journey toward; but it is the journey that matters, in the end.”
Ursula K. Le Guin, The Left Hand of Darkness

Kakuzō Okakura
“Let us dream of evanescence, and linger in the beautiful foolishness of things.”
