Weird how I can feel so frail and tiny sometimes, and other times so brave and bold and reckless and free, and . . . Does everybody feel the same? When people get grown-up, do they always feel grown-up and sensible and sorted out and . . . And do I want to feel grown-up?...
My goal is not to be perfect or normal. My goal is to be WHOLE.
So, this is how it’s become? This is how I’ve become? A walking contradiction? I’m surrounded by people and feel alone. I claim to crave a bit of normalcy but now that I have some, it’s like I don’t know what to do with it, I don’t know how to be a normal person anymore.
I think that’s part of the fun of being an actor – you get to not be normal all of the time.
Sexual normalcy and abnormality are personal and subjective concepts. What is unnatural to one [person] is natural to another. What is abnormal under certain conditions may be completely normal under others. And, in any event, to be different is not necessarily to be wrong, or to be sick.
I could almost see fairies skipping on top of the snake-tongue flames—brief moments of clarity overcome by suffocating normalcy. It occurred to me that everything is believable during a glimpse, and it is during these flashes we see things as they truly are—unruly shadows in the corner of our perceptions.

The baby was warm against my chest. I knew I was broken too. I wasn’t like other people. I was scared and weird and anxious and sad lots of the time, and I didn’t know why. My parents thought I was abnormal, I was pretty sure. They said I wasn’t, but you don’t get sent...
Statisticians report that television is watched over six hours a day in the average American household. I don’t know any fiction writers who live in average American households. I suspect Louise Erdrich might. Actually I have never seen an average American household. Except on TV.
Do you want me because you love me or because I provide you normality drag?
You can’t do that kind of thing normally, but normal dumped without a note nearly a month ago. These days, I’ll happily set fire to a bridge the second after I’ve crossed it – I don’t plan on being around for the consequences to catch up with me.
A perfectly normal person is rare in our civilization.
If you are different from the rest of the flock, they bite you
Normal’ ist zunächst, was zwei Leute dafür halten.
I don’t do normal. I have a reputation to uphold. (Thwonk)
I often lose motivation, but it’s something I accept as normal.
