Kathleen Collins
“...later she would laugh when she discovered that meaninglessness came from the dark shaft of gloom that surrounded her day and night, and that ecstasy was just a sunny room away.”
Kathleen Collins, Whatever Happened to Interracial Love?

Tove Jansson
“He said, "It was burning a hole in my pocket. I had to get rid of it, as quickly as possible. I had to buy the most important think I could think of."
And he went out and bought a dreadfully tiny bottle of attar of roses.

Tove Jansson, The Woman Who Borrowed Memories: Selected Stories

“Passion. As you can see, I've lived quite a long time, which is to say I've been working for quite a long time, which is the same thing. And you know what? In the whole silly business, the only thing that really matters is passion. It comes and it goes. At first it just comes to you free of charge, and you don't understand, and you waste it. And then it becomes a thing to nurture.”
Tove Jansson, The Woman Who Borrowed Memories: Selected Stories

Tove Jansson, The Woman Who Borrowed Memories: Selected Stories

Eve Babitz
“There is no precedent for women getting their own "everything" and learning that it's not the answer.”
Eve Babitz, Slow Days, Fast Company: The World, the Flesh, and L.A.: Tales
