It is in the middle of intimacy that the reality of loneliness most dramatically appears.” ~ Rowan Williams

  58. “O Prosperina,
    For the flowers now that, frighted, thou let’st fall
    From Dis’s wagon; daffodils,
    That come before the swallow dares, and take
    The winds of March with beauty; violets dim,
    But sweeter than the lids of Juno’s eyes
    Or Cytherea’s breath; pale primroses,
    That die unmarried, ere they can behold
    Bright Phoebus in his strength–a malady
    Most incident to maids; bold oxlips and
    The crown imperial; lilies of all kinds,
    The flower-de-luce being one.” ~ William Shakespeare

I told her there were literally millions of people in this country who wanted but could not have children and who waited eagerly, sometimes for years, to adopt the baby she had described.” ~ Ronald Reagan

These are the gentlemen who blocked human evolution absolutely for a thousand years.” ~ Elbert Hubbard
  64. “Perhaps there will come a time when…an unmarried mother will not be despised because of her motherhood…and when the right of the unborn to be born will not be denied or interfered with.” ~ Caroline Norton
  65. “Sejal had not thought of her home, or of India as a whole, as cool. She was dimly aware, however, of a white Westerner habit of wearing other cultures like T-shirts—the sticker bindis on club kids, sindoor in the hair of an unmarried pop star, Hindi characters inked carelessly on tight tank tops and pale flesh. She knew Americans liked to flash a little Indian or Japanese or African. They were always looking for a little pepper to put in their dish.” ~ Adam Rex
