You know, I'm not really any good at working out when people are flirting with me. And I think I'm too flirtatious with people I'm trying not to flirt with! What I am good at is making people feel uncomfortable. I don't want to but it always ends up happening!

Primarily, 'Black Girl/White Girl' is the story of two very different, yet somehow 'fated' girls; for Genna, her 'friendship' with Minette is the most haunting of her life, though it is one-sided and ends in tragedy.

I really don't like going out. I don't like restaurants because I don't like the idea of someone, a waitress, being responsible for my evening.

Where the law ends tyranny begins.
All wars, even the noblest, bring a reckoning of means and ends.
Argentine political life is like the life of an ant community or an African forest tribe: full of events, full of crisis and deaths, but life is always cyclical, and the year ends as it begins.

Madeleine M. Kunin
One argument against open systems is that they become open to everything, good and bad.

Apple's development must come from within.
John F. Kennedy
Martin Luther King, Jr.
