Anne Sexton
“As for me, I am a watercolor.
I wash off.”
Anne Sexton

Naomi Wolf
“Today, women have access to the technological capacity to do anything to our bodies in the struggle for "beauty", but we have yet to evolve a mentality beyond the old rules, to let them imagine that this combat among women is not inevitable. Surgeons can now do anything. We have not yet reached the age in which we can defend ourselves with an unwillingness to have "anything" done. This is a dangerous time. New possibilities for women quickly become new obligations. ”
Naomi Wolf

Elizabeth Wurtzel
“Insanity is knowing that what you're doing is completely idiotic, but still, somehow, you just can't stop it.”
Elizabeth Wurtzel, Prozac Nation

“We, who are so schooled in the art of listening to the voices of others, can often hear our own voice only when we are alone. . . For many women, the first choice, then, is to give ourselves the necessary time and space in which to renew our acquaintance with our lost voice, to learn to recognize it, and to rejoice as we hear it express our truth.”
Florence Falk, On My Own: The Art of Being a Woman Alone

Kathy Reichs
“Today he wore a burnt-orange shirt, black pants, and a tie that looked like a street fight at the south end of the color wheel.”
Kathy Reichs, Monday Mourning
