  • Love is a dangerous angel ... Especially nowadays.

  • But love and disease are both like electricity, Weetzie thought. They are always there — you can't see or smell or hear, touch, or taste them, but you know they are there like a current in the air. We can choose, Weetzie thought, we can choose to plug into the love current instead.

  • ... black sheeps express everyone else's anger and pain. It's not that they have all the anger and pain — they're just the only ones who let it out. Then the other people don't have to.

  • Just like any woman ... we weave our stories out of our bodies. Some of us through our children, or our art; some do it just by living. It's all the same.
