"I am not going to answer any questions as to my association, my philosophical or religious beliefs or my political beliefs, or how I voted in any election, or any of these private affairs. I think these are very improper questions for any American to be asked, especially under such compulsion as this. I would be very glad to tell you my life if you want to hear of it."

Pete Seeger, to the House Unamerican Activities Committee (HUAC), August 18, 1955

"What do I keep in my purse? A tiny man. He hands me things as I need them. My monocle, my mustache—you know, the basics."

Amy Poehler, InStyle Magazine (via tinas-fey)

I love that Amy frequently calls women’s mags out on the ridiculous questions they ask famous women. She is an IRL Leslie Knope and it is awesome.

"We don’t so much read Alice’s stories as live through them: they can be exhausting and enervating; they can leave us fragile, our senses heightened; they can leave us satisfied, thrilled. The saddest part is that they leave us at all."

—Deborah Treisman, on editing Alice Munro for The New Yorker

“If anyone’s watching me and my partner in our apartment with its oversized windows, when we forget to close the curtains, I say let them look, imperfections and all, the fights and fragments, the real tenderness, the laughter, the love, especially that. We have nothing to hide.”

“I count too heavily on birthdays, though I know I shouldn’t. Inevitably I begin to assess my life by them, figure out how I’m doing by how many people remember; it’s like the old fantasy of attending your own funeral: You get to see who your friends are, get to see who shows up. ” 
― Lorrie Moore, Anagrams

Happy Birthday Maris!
