Paul Brown liked a quote
When You Are Engulfed in Flames by David Sedaris
“It's astonishing the amount of time that certain straight people devote to gay sex - trying to determine what goes where and how often. They can't imagine any system outside their own, and seem obsessed with the idea of roles, both in bed and out of it. Who calls whom a bitch? Who cries harder when the cat dies? Which one spends the most time in the bathroom? I guess they think that it's that cut-and-dried, though of course it's not. Hugh might do the cooking, and actually wear an apron while he's at it, but he also chops the firewood, repairs the hot-water heater, and could tear off my arm with no more effort than it takes to uproot a dandelion.”
David Sedaris

Brian Selznick
“Ben wished the world was organized by the Dewey decimal system. That way you'd be able to find whatever you were looking for.”
Brian Selznick, Wonderstruck

Connor Franta
“Race, gender, religion, sexuality, we are all people and that's it. We're all people. We're all equal.”
Connor Franta

Connor Franta
“It’s okay. It may not seem like it right now, but you are going to be fine. I know it’s scary, but don’t be afraid. You are who you are, and you should love that person, and I don’t want anyone to have to go through 22 years of their life afraid to accept that.”
Connor Franta

Kathleen Patel
“With ignorance comes fear- from fear comes bigotry. Education is the key to acceptance.”
Kathleen Patel, The Bullying Epidemic-the guide to arm you for the fight

Chely Wright
“I hear the word "tolerance" -- that some people are trying to teach people to be tolerant of gays. I'm not satisfied with that word. I am gay, and I am not seeking to be "tolerated." One tolerates a toothache, rush-hour traffic, an annoying neighbor with a cluttered yard. I am not a negative to be tolerated.”
Chely Wright, Like Me: Confessions of a Heartland Country Singer
