"Tenderness toward the unknown and anonymous, which was tenderness to the self.”  ― Michael Ondaatje, The English Patient journal, feminism, islam,
Structural violence creates lopsided structures of the imagination. Those on the bottom of the heap have to spend a great deal of imaginative energy trying to understand the social dynamics that surround them—including having to imagine perspectives of those on the top—while the latter wander about largely oblivious to much of what is going on around them. That is, the powerless not only end up doing most of the actual, physical labor that is required to keep society running, they also do most the interpretive labor as well.

— David Graeber, Dead Zones of the Imagination

“Time is the substance I am made of. Time is a river which sweeps me along, but I am the river; it is a tiger which destroys me, but I am the tiger; it is a fire which consumes me, but I am the fire.”

Jorge Luis Borges, Labyrinths: Selected Stories and Other Writings

“My mind is bisexual. It’s easy for me to love a woman. It’s also easy for me to love a man too” and “I believe that a good actor would be androgynous, and ever changing,” referencing his performance of intersexuality, androgynous dressing, and gay femininity in his music videos and films" - Leslie Cheung
