"Twenty years from now you will be more
disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So
throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade
winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover."
Mark Twain (1835 - 1910)
Humorist and writer
"If you dream of a world in which you can put your partner's picture on your
desk, then put his picture on your desk and you will live in such a world.
If you dream of a world in which you can walk down the street and hold your
partner's hand, then hold her hand and you will live in such a world. If you
dream of a world in which there are more openly gay elected officials, then
run for office and you will live in such a world. And if you dream of a
world in which you can take your partner to the office party, even if your
office is the U.S. House of Representatives, then take her to the party.
I do, and now I live in such a world. Remember, there are two things that
keep us oppressed: them and us. We are half of the equation. There will
not be a magic day when we wake up and it's now ok to express ourselves
publicly. We must make that day ourselves, by speaking out publicly first in small
numbers, then in greater numbers, until it's simply the way things are and
no one thinks twice. Never doubt that we will create this world, because, my
friends, we are fortunate to live in a democracy, and in a democracy, we
decide what is possible."
U.S. Rep. Tammy Baldwin D-Wis. - Millennium March on Washington

happy to let the monarchy go. But having a king who's a beautiful hunk - that would be

"Be who you are and will be
learn to cherish
that boisterous black angel
that brings you up one day,
and down another." - Audre Lorde
"I love being me, ask anyone!" -Frankie in Stigmata
"Great spirits have always encountered violent opposition
from mediocre minds." --Albert Einstein
"If you judge people, you have no time to love them."
"The day we stop resisting our instincts,
we'll have learned how to live."
--Frederico Garcia Lorca, 1933
"To a large segment of our society, gay people are
viewed as sexual outlaws. ... God forbid a straight
person should acknowledge that there are pleasures
associated with their anus. That's a big, big door
that people don't want to open." --Phil Hartman
"Ginger Rogers did everything Fred Astaire did but
backwards in pumps!"
"We don't fight to win, because we don't win.
We fight because there are some things worth fighting for."
--Angel, Buffy the Vampire Slayer TV series
"Religion is for people who are afraid of going to hell,
Spirituality is for people who have been there."
A Wiccan Saying
"I should like to say to the women and men of the generations
which will come after us:
You will look at us in astonishment!
You will wonder at the passionate struggles that
accomplished so little; at the truths we grasped at
but could never quite get our fingers round -
but what you will never know is how it was
thinking of you and for you that we struggled
as we did - that is in the thought of your
larger realisation and fuller life that we found consolation
for the futilities of our own."
Olive Schreiner, Lesbians and Gay Men, Lancaster, UK, 1978

"Man is the Religious Animal. He is the only Religious Animal. He is the
only animal that has the True Religion-several of them. He is the only
animal that loves his neighbor as himself, and cuts his throat if his
theology isn't straight. He has made a graveyard of the globe in trying
his honest best to smooth his brother's path to happiness and heaven."
Mark Twain - Man's Place in the Animal World

Thank you. We're all refreshed and challenged by your
unique point of view.

you're an artist.

I'll try being nicer if you'll try being smarter.
I'm out of my mind, but feel free to leave a message...
My toys! My toys! I can't do this job without my toys!
It might look like I'm doing nothing, but at the
cellular level I'm really quite busy.
I see you've set aside this special time to humiliate
yourself in public.
Someday, we'll look back on this, laugh nervously and
change the subject.
