Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
“In keeping silent about evil, in burying it so deep within us that no sign of it appears on the surface, we are implanting it, and it will rise up a thousand fold in the future.

Aleksandr I. Solzhenitsyn, The Gulag Archipelago 1918–1956

Al Pacino
“I don’t understand the hatred and fear of gays and bisexuals and lesbians…

Al Pacino, Al Pacino

Rita Mae Brown
“If you dont like my book write your own.”
Rita Mae Brown, Rubyfruit Jungle
