    Among the rigs with Annie!” ~ Robert Burns

It’s not a chore to me to eat healthy food.” ~ Blake Griffin

There are male Adorants certainly – up on tiptoe, their outstretched arms hoisted in a kind of heil, their bodies arched suggestively, pelvis forward, before the Goddess – but there are no masculine deities, not a single one in sight. No woman worth her salt, one might think, could fail to be intrigued.” ~ Alison Fell

I only wish people knew that; then they wouldn’t be so stingy about it, you know—” ~ Lewis Carroll

But here she was, pressing the Democratic Party to refuse to recognize the all-white Mississippi delegation, because obviously there was no way Mississippi could have an all-white delegation.
