"The more I was treated as a woman, the more woman I became. A adapted willy-nilly. If I was assumed to be incompetent at reversing cars, or opening bottles, oddly incompetent I found myself becoming. If a case was thought too heavy for me, inexplicably I found it so myself." - Jan Morris

"In some ways I'm oddly traditional, I've been a serial monogamist since I was 12.

"And Supernatural, in fact, going there wasit felt like a place where I had to actually, um, learn to be kind of manly. I felt like I had to kind of change my, like, way of speaking for a little bit, just to kind of fit in, oddly enough. Which was weird." - Ben Edlund

"I usually arrive at the first rehearsal with a vague memory of most of it.

"Obama, who is becoming more and more preacher-like, wants to be the Punisher-in-Chi ef of the Western World, the Avenger-in-Chie f. There is something oddly Roman about him. ...

"Cheating is easy. There's no swank to infidelity. To borrow against the trust someone has placed in you costs nothing at first.

Oddly, your hands should be full with all that taking but when you open them there's nothing there." - Jeanette Winterson

"We feel that our actions are voluntary when they follow a decision and involuntary when they happen without decision.

Oddly enough, if we had to decide to decide, we would not be free to decide" - Alan Watts

"The popularity of the paranormal, oddly enough, might even be grounds for encouragement.

"One paradox I have found is that, the more you use computers in picture-making, the more hand-made the picture becomes.
