The only queer people are those who don't love anybody.
Cut the ending. Revise the script. The man of her dreams is a girl.
Do people always fall in love with things they can't have?' 'Always,' Carol said, smiling, too.
You had to be willing to fight in order for a love story to last a life time.
Girls love each other like animals. There is something ferocious and unself-conscious about it. We don't guard ourselves like we do with boys. No one trains us to shield our hearts from each other. With girls, it's total vulnerability from the beginning. Our skin is bare and soft. We love with claws and teeth and the blood is just proof of how much. It's feral. And it's relentless.
I don’t understand the hatred and fear of gays and bisexuals and lesbians… it’s a concept I honestly cannot grasp. To me, it’s not who you love… a man, a woman, what have you… it’s the fact that you love. That is all that truly matters.
No one has imagined us. We want to live like trees, sycamores blazing through the sulfuric air, dappled with scars, still exuberantly budding, our animal passion rooted in the city.
I seem to have run in a great circle, and met myself again on the starting line.
I think choosing between men and women is like choosing between cake and ice cream. You'd be daft not to try both when there are so many different flavors.
So, let me get this straight-- You want me to stop being a lesbian and being attracted to women because it is a 'sin'? Last time I checked, when you lie you are sinning. Sure, I could tell you I am no longer a lesbian or that I am no longer attracted to women and am straight, or I could even tell you the moon is made of cheese. I could tell you many things, but the moon will still not be made of cheese, and I will still not be attracted to men. I could tell you a lie in order to placate you, but isn’t the truth supposed to set me free? I choose truth over lies any day of the week.

I think God is a callous bitch not making me a lesbian. I'm deeply disappointed by my sexual interest in men.
The single best thing about coming out of the closet is that nobody can insult you by telling you what you've just told them.
Together, in that room, our childhood notions of love melted away. We discovered love was not a fairytale. Sometimes there were no happy endings, and when there were, you needed to work like hell to keep the happiness alive.
Love is a wild fire that cannot be contained by any mere element known to man.
For the first time in my life, I said the words, “I need a drink.
It is no wonder lesbians love women.
There was no way to tell their mothers the truth and make them believe it, that hearts that loved boys and girls were no more reckless or easily won than any other heart. They loved who they loved. They broke how they broke. And the way it happened depended less on what was under their lovers’ clothes and more on what was wrapped inside their spirits. What secret halls and trapdoors their sounds held, and what each one hid and guarded.
Eros, again now, the loosener of limbs troubles me, Bittersweet, sly, uncontrollable creature….
If my God damns people for love but saves them for brutle warfare, then that is not the God I know or wish to worship.
