"The most important things are the hardest to say. They are the things you get ashamed of, because words diminish them — words shrink things that seemed limitless when they were in your head to no more than living size when they’re brought out. But it’s more than that, isn’t it? The most important things lie too close to wherever your secret heart is buried, like landmarks to a treasure your enemies would love to steal away. And you may make revelations that cost you dearly only to have people look at you in a funny way, not understanding what you’ve said at all, or why you thought it was so important that you almost cried while you were saying it. That’s the worst, I think. When the secret stays locked within not for want of a tellar but for want of an understanding ear."

- Stephen King

“But sexism still exists and recently when I went to America to have some talks for Rebel Park I felt they didn’t get me. I’m sure they’re thinking, ‘Oh, she’s an actress so what does she know about being a producer’, but then I start talking about our plans and they realise I have a brain. I think there’s a pre-judgment just because I have boobs.”

"Wait …Nietzsche was closer to Christ than many Christians? How could that be? Nietzsche understood the implications of what Christ did on Good Friday better than many who claim to be Christians. Nietzsche was closer to Christ than many Christians because he knew the Christ that he rejected, whereas many Christians don’t know the Christ whom they call Lord and Savior."
