Molly Crabapple

  • When you're an outsider, you don't have loyalties to anyone, so you can be cruelly honest if need be. The more you get inside, the more you are involved in polite networks of professional coercion that make people less honest.

    • Molly Crabapple,
    • in Rachel Luban, "The Zelig of Occupy," In These Times ()
  • Each new drawing was at once an escape and a homecoming. The pen was a lockpick, the paper a castle I could hide within. To draw was trouble and safety, adventure and freedom. Art was a stranger making eyes through the smoke of a foreign dive bar. Art was my dearest friend.

  • Drawing is always a disruptive act. You produce when you're expected to consume.

  • To make someone love you, see them as the person they want to be.

  • Schools have a kind of power over their students that most American adults will never experience until they enter a hospital, or old age home, an institution, or a prison.

  • Rejection is inevitable. Let it hit you hard for a moment, feel the hurt, and then move on.
