Get people who are registered Republicans. Get people who were George Bush voters who can’t bring themselves to do it again. Talk to them, get them to explain what their reasons are, and show them to people. What’s wrong with this idea?!” ~ Errol Morris

That’s the costume Superman wears to blend in with us. Clark Kent is how Superman views us. And what are the characteristics of Clark Kent. He’s weak… he’s unsure of himself… he’s a coward. Clark Kent is Superman’s critique on the whole human race.” ~ Quentin Tarantino
  29. “For better or worse, I seem to gravitate toward writing about something or someone else, then have my own self shove its way into that story. It seems insanely narcissistic.

I write a lot about bodies, particularly male ones, usually as a point of emphasis for my insecurities about my own.” ~ Lucas Mann

It means accepting that she was tired, inept, sometimes stupid; that she, too, sat in the dark at 2:00 A.M. with a child shrieking across the hall and no clue to the child’s trouble.” ~ Anna Quindlen , Unsure quotes about relationship

One never knows what will make the difference in the long run.” ~ Sabina Murray , Unsure quotes about decision

And I am unsure about the universe.” ~ Albert Einstein , Unsure quotes about love
