Stray Quotations

I've always felt it's ridiculous to say, of any of the females in my life: You're my friend, you're my wife, you're my girlfriend, you're my co-worker. This is your box, and you're not allowed to stray outside of it.
Jack White

Sharon Salzberg

Randeep Hooda

Brian Setzer

How I long to fall just a little bit, to dance out of the lines and stray from the light.
Dar Williams
