I believe only in art and failure.
Morality is a test of our conformity rather than our integrity.
Human beings tolerate what they understand they have to tolerate.
Coming out, all the way out, is offered more and more as the political solution to our oppression.
Love is the terrible secret people are suspected of unless they're married, then one always suspects they don't.

People genuinely happy in their choices seem less often tempted to force them on other people than those who feel martyred and broken by their lives.
Morality, like language, is an invented structure for conserving and communicating order. And morality is learned, like language, by mimicking and remembering.
If we don't bear witness as citizens, as people, as individuals, the right that we have had to life is sacrificed. There is a silence, instead of a speaking presence.
