This unique treasury of memorable quotations from across the centuries and around the world is an outstanding record of gay and lesbian sensibility.

Joe Orton on Truth:
"There are two sexes. The unpalatable truth must be faced."

Eleanor Roosevelt on Curiosity:
"I think, at a child's birth, if a mother could ask a fairy godmother to endow it with the most useful gift, that gift should be curiosity."

Rita Mae Brown on Art:
"If Michelangelo were a heterosexual, the Sistine Chapel would have been painted basic white and with a roller."

H.D. on Achievement:
"We have not crawled so very far/up our individual grass-blade/toward our individual star."

Jean Cocteau on Arguments and Quarrels:
"But brawling leads to laryngitis."

Boy George on Advice:
"If you have to be in a soap opera try not to get the worst role."

Florence King on Solitude:
"He travels fastest who travels alone, and that goes double for she."
