It starts feeling like that sometimes, doesn't it?" - Kathleen Hanna

"I can't complain about anything. It's like saying, "I don't like talkies." Time marches on and I don't care how people watch my movies as long as they see them.

The smaller the better." - John Waters

The victim!" - Al Sharpton

Then she dragged him into the bushes, took his gun and walkie-talkie, and kept moving." - Libba Bray

"God has given us prayer as a wartime walkie-talkie so that we can call headquarters for everything we need as the kingdom of Christ advances in the world.

Thus prayer safeguards the supremacy of God in missions while linking us with endless grace for every need." - John Piper
