Somebody who can reckon with the past, who can live with the past in the present, and move towards the future - that's fabulous.
The first time that you escape from home or the small town that you live in - there's a reason a small town is called a small town: It's because not many people want to live there.
Billie Joe Armstrong
I live in a landscape, which every single day of my life is enriching.
Fishes live in the sea, as men do on land: the great ones eat up the little ones.
I think that we need mythology. We need a bedrock of story and legend in order to live our lives coherently.
You cannot live on other people's promises, but if you promise others enough, you can live on your own.
When it looks like I may live longer than five minutes I'll drop cigarettes like a hot potato.
We may have forgotten how to feel. Nobody is teaching us how to live happily ever after, as we've heard in fairy tales.
The most important thing is to live an interesting life. Keep your eyes, ears and heart open. Talk to people and visit interesting places, and don't forget to ask questions. To be a writer you need to drink in the world around you so it's always there in your head.
It is neccessary to have wished for death in order to know how good it is to live.
Live an interesting life. Meet people. Read a lot and widely, learn from the great writers.
We live in a culture that doesn't acknowledge or validate human intuition and doesn't encourage us to rely on our intuitive wisdom.

It's getting too late in my life to care about the small things. It's getting too late to not be brave, to not live my life fully, to not try to be an artist. Trivial things like how nice your hotel room is, or if you have to be naked for a while, they fade away.
My only wish would be to have 10 more lives to live on this planet. If that were possible, I'd spend one lifetime each in embryology, genetics, physics, astronomy and geology. The other lifetimes would be as a pianist, backwoodsman, tennis player, or writer for the 'National Geographic.'
The clothes that I design and everything I've done is about life and how people live and how they want to live and how they dream they'll live. That's what I do.

Of course it is very limiting to be labeled a lesbian or queer writer. We live in a homophobic culture, and even people who aren't hateful per se assume they won't get anything from a queer book.
