English is an outrageous tangle of those derivations and other multifarious linguistic influences, from Yiddish to Shoshone, which has grown up around a gnarly core of chewy, clangorous yawps derived from ancestors who painted themselves blue to frighten their enemies.
Roy Blount, Jr.

'Thrasher' magazine's Skater of the Year is clearly my No. 1 goal. The only way I get that is skating. Other than that, I haven't set that many outrageous goals.

I think my personality leaks thru in all my roles. There are probably lots of parts of my personality that I don't express for fear of looking a bit odd, but in acting, I have license to be free from what anyone thinks. I can be outrageous, a vamp, naughty, spoiled, bigger than life. All the things that are really part of me but I don't show.
I know that if I say something that's considered outrageous, a group will take it, create an email blast, and use me to raise money or to do whatever, to build their profile.

I'm sure I am impatient sometimes. I sure do get angry sometimes. I think it's outrageous how hard it is to get this country to feed its children and to take care of its children, to give them a decent education.
Marian Wright Edelman
